20 Volunteers Who Took Turns Giving CPR for 96 Minutes Are Reunited with Survivor

When a man had a cardiac arrest in a grocery story in a remote town in Minnesota in 2011, 20 people lined up and performed CPR on him for over an hour and a half until paramedics arrived -- and he survived. The survivor and his rescuers were recently reunited. Said Roger White, MD, of the Mayo Clinic: "I've been waiting for this moment for a long time."

The town of Goodhue, Minn., has a population of less than 1,000. The town does not even have a traffic light.

Howard Snitzer, 54, was heading to buy groceries at Don's Foods, when he crumpled to the sidewalk, suffering sudden cardiac arrest.
