Earlier this week Howard Snitzer was walking down the street in his hometown in Minnesota when he suddenly began feeling chest pains. Snitzer reportedly grabbed his chest and fell to the cold sidewalk due to a heart attack. Fortunately some braze bystanders stepped in and offered their help and in turn saved Snitzer’s life.
Reported indicate that a group of brothers saw the incident take place and immediately jumped into action. One man began doing whatever he could to save Snitzer while his brother quickly searched for help. The three men began by performing CPR on Snitzer and much to their dismay he was not responding even after minutes of CPR.
Before help arrived the men and a group of approximately a dozen bystanders continued performing CPR on Snitzer. Reports indicate that the group of people took turns working on Snitzer for over an hour and a half while waiting for help to arrive. Miraculously Snitzer did in fact survive.
Many doctors say this was likely the most intensive out of hospital resuscitation ever undergone; they say the odds were heavily stacked against Snitzer and despite that he is recovering just fine. The most amazing part of the story is that the entire event took place in a town of less than 1000 people in rural Minnesota.
