Therapeutic Hypothermia works wonders.

WRIGTHSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) – James Glasgow, 36 of Mt. Pleasant, SC, collapsed earlier this month while running in the Wrightsville Beach Marathon.

He went down less than a mile from the finish line and was given a 5-8 percent chance of survival.

"I was a hundred yards away from the finish line," said Glasgow more than a week after the collapse. "[I] sat down, crossed my legs and just layed back on the sidewalk."

A bystander saw Glasgow lying on the sidewalk and started doing CPR. An EMT crew came over two minutes later to take over. They paddled the runner and then took him to New Hanover Regional Medical Center where doctors used the Arctic Sun technique to keep Glasgow alive.
