DULUTH -- Authorities are crediting the quick actions of an off-duty Duluth firefighter for reviving a referee at a high school hockey game.

Referee Pat Milinovich collapsed between the second and third periods of Saturday's game between Duluth Marshall and Crookston.

Brad Bushey, an off-duty Duluth firefighter, and others dashed from the stands to lend a hand. Bushey says the referee looked blue and wasn't breathing. He says he immediately began administering CPR, re-established a heartbeat, and the referee began breathing on his own.

Milinovich's condition was not released by hospital staff Sunday.

Duluth Marshall beat Crookston 3-1.
