PORTRAIT IN FLIGHT CARDIAC ARREST HEART ATTACK PATRICK EMMETT
At 30,000 feet on a Northwest Airlines flight, Patrick Emmett had sudden cardiac arrest with a 100% blockage of his aorta. Fortunately, the flight carried a AED (automated extenal defibrillator) and Emmett's heart was restarted. When Emmett came to on the floor of the airplane, he felt like he was emerging from the inky waters of a deep, dark well. The experience insired Emmett to found Kansas City's regional chapter of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association.
