My SCA happened on Feb. 2, 2007 so I am essentially 4 yrs old. It happened when I was driving home from dinner at Racine’s in Denver, CO. I was stopped at a stoplight on 8th and Galapago. When the light turned green, I passed out in my driver’s seat from SCA. The person in the car dialed 911. I was 2 blocks from Denver Health.
There was a police car at the other part of the same intersection stopped.
When they saw commotion, they came over and began CPR. Due to the close proximity of the hospital, an AED on board the ambulance, and the CPR by the police officers, I survived with no issues – only an ICD device implanted to protect me in the future. The stars were aligned and I’m still active and grateful to be here!
