He is my best friend. He had a heart attack while driveing. He has had heart sergery this afternoon. An artery was completely blocked. He is young & fit. He was taking his dog to the dog park. He is in an induced coma now so they can get the swelling down that's on his brain. I want to say thank you to his neighbors who did CPR till the EMT's got there. You probably saved his life. Thank you!!! We will not know more.till they start bringing him out of the coma.
