WTMJ is teaming up with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about the nation’s number one killer- heart disease.
Today, we share the story of Michael Saxby.
Michael was playing basketball when he went into sudden cardiac arrest.
He was saved because of a perfect chain of survival: someone started CPR compressions, someone else got the school’s AED, and local EMS arrived quickly.
Michael and his mom Molly sat down with WTMJ’s Gene Mueller. Hear more in the player above.
