Robbyn Hart talks with Nick Gravina, a South Metro Firefighter who returned to work 6 months after a near fatal heart attack. Gravina, the father of two young sons, is exceedingly grateful to everyone who played a part in the life-saving treatment which allowed him to recover and to return to work in late October. He knows first-hand that the majority of heart attack victims are not so lucky. He realizes, too, that he tempted fate by ignoring the signals his body was sending him. He encourages everyone to know the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and to seek help immediately if they are present. Lieutenant Steve Woodrick, who performed CPR on Gravina, also has a suggestion for the rest of us: "Learn CPR," he says, "learn how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). They're simple to use and are readily available in more and more businesses and schools all the time," Woodrick concluded. If you do, who knows? Maybe you'll be in a position to save the life of a co-worker or family member, someday, too.
