Rescuer(s):
Tyler Riggs and Debbie Geooms

On July 24, 2019 at approximately 1:00 pm, I was standing, talking to my fiancé and my heart went into ventricular fibrillation, sending me into cardiac arrest. I was clinically dead before I even collapsed to the floor. Tyler, my 13-year-old, called 911 and Debbie started CPR, saving me from anoxic brain damage. I am here today with my two sons and fiancé because they acted fast. I would like to especially nominate my 13-yr-old son Tyler and Debbie for saving my life. I have 3 stents and an ICD in my chest and I live a very happy, grateful life.
