from WMFD TV web site 11-21-11

A Mansfield Christian seventh through ninth grade social studies teacher gave his testimony to God Tuesday following his efforts to save a co-worker who suffered a heart attack.

Roger Dials spoke to Mansfield Christian students about his experience on Nov. 14 at the Walmart on Possum Run Road where he works a second job.

Dials performed CPR for 20 minutes on co-worker Ronald Faust who had suffered a heart attack as he was unloading boxes from a conveyor belt.

Faust told the students he owes Dials his life for his actions a week ago.

Dials modestly gave all his praise to God.

Faust says Walmart has been wonderful to work for and will probably be back to work in six weeks or less where he'll be assigned other duties.

Pittsburgh News Anchor Survives Cardiac Arrest

PITTSBURGH--KDKA-TV news anchor Susan Koeppen remains hospitalized after suffering cardiac arrest while running with friends.

Koeppen, an award-winning journalist who returned to Pittsburgh airways on Sept. 19 to co-anchor KDKA's 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts, was stricken Sunday while running near the intersection of Centre and South Negley avenues in Shadyside.

City police said running partners began performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation and that a passerby used an automated external defibrillator from a nearby business until paramedics arrived.

KDKA general manager Christopher Pike would only say Koeppen was off the air Monday night. He refused further comment "to abide by her family's wishes."

Koeppen was a consumer reporter and weekend anchor for WTAE-TV before becoming the consumer correpsondent for CBS News' "The Early Show" in 2004.
