So amazing to see bystanders jump into action for a stranger. It is amazing that just the right people with the knowledge needed were there to help out.

Great story. Another survivor in the north metro. Dr. Hustead was my doctor when I went into sudden cardiac arrest in October. The Star/Tribune did an article on me as well (keep up the great survival stories StarTribune). Thanks god for the efforts of the Heart Safe community in Coon Rapids and the great staff at Mercy hospital, along with all the first responders. because of them, people like us get a second chance.

There are some gaps in this story. I imagine law enforcement had a much more significant role than is highlighted. While it's great to see the general public stepping up to help, in a time when most of the coverage about law enforcement is negative, it would be nice to focus on the good work they do too. Did anyone think to interview the officer or his superiors? It is not my intent to discount the efforts of the Murdock brothers, and I understand the officer is simply doing his job, but I feel the quick actions of the law enforcement official deserved some acknowledgement as well. Although the AED "didn't work" according to one of the Murdock boys, the use of it combined with the CPR most certainly contributed to the positive outcome. I partner with law enforcement officials frequently, and the large majority of them are a credit to their profession and assets to our communities. They get a bad rap more often than not, so it would have been nice to hear about their efforts, and even the efforts of the ambulance personal, as well...the REST of the story. Glad Ashly is ok, that's the bottom line. Kudos to the Murdock boys for a job well done.
