Tennessee Man Saved by Wearable Defibrillator

COOKEVILLE, TN -- It may not be the most attractive accessory but Billie Kerley doesn't care. He'll tell you that he's just thankful to be alive.

"If you're interested in life ... I don't see no reason why that a doctor himself, or a nurse or anything like that couldn't influence somebody, in a way, to wear it," Kerley said.

After suffering from an acute heart attack that weakened his heart, Kerley was fitted with a LifeVest -- the first wearable defibrillator that requires no bystander intervention. Just a few days later, while sleeping, he went into cardiac arrest.
