Lady Gaga Fan Saved with AED at Concert

NASHVILLE--At a recent Lady Gaga concert in Tennessee, 33-year-old Crystal Thorton suffered a seizure and her heart stopped beating.  In a crowded show, EMTs were able to respond quickly, and with the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), were able to get her heart beating again after five minutes.  Doctors said Friday that without the EMTs having access to an AED, Thorton would not have survived.
