Doug and Mary Ellen Scott

2014 Nominees  Mary Ellen Scott and Beth (Scott) Rittenhouse
Survivor Doug Scott, Huntington, IN – 53 at time of event (2014)

Location of event – Home

My name is Doug Scott, age 53, from Huntington, Indiana.

This may seem rare but I have two people to nominate, my wife and daughter, Mary Ellen Scott and Beth (Scott) Rittenhouse.

My event occurred on January 2, 2014, at my home.

Through their quick response and actions and performing CPR and chest compressions and calling 9-1-1, I am alive today with very few side effects.

There is no way to thank them enough for what they have done for me. They did all the right things. My wife stayed by my side throughout my entire hospital stay, all but one night. She is the world to me.

During my hospital stay, I had three surgeries and received three stents and an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator).

Nominated by Doug Scott
