Allina Heart Safe AED, Buffalo banker save doctor

[Fox 9 News, March 22, 2012] Two men -- one a doctor and the other a banker -- both shared a love of basketball, but neither could have imagined they would have shared a moment that would lead one to save the other's life.

Dr. Frank Anderson's love for basketball may have saved his life. Twice a week, he comes to Discovery Elementary in Buffalo, Minn. to play ball with friends and acquaintances -- like Steve Huston. Huston was there during a late January morning when the unthinkable happened. "The game was going on, and all of a sudden, we turned around and Frank had fallen backwards," Huston recalled.

The 32-year-old doctor's heart had suddenly stopped beating, and Huston sprang into action. He opened up the AED, which was just outside the gym, and put the pads on Anderson. Watch the whole story here.
