Man thanks bystanders, first responders who helped save his life after heart attack
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A Houston man got to personally thank a group of bystanders who helped save his life after he suffered a heart attack.
Farshid Parvinazar on Friday thanked four women and several first responders at Fire Station 82 in southwest Houston. A few weeks ago, Parvinazar was playing volleyball at a gym when he suffered his heart attack and collapsed. Four women quickly jumped into action, calling 9-1-1 then starting CPR.
"Over 25 people that saved my life and I believe deep in my heart if one of them was not there I wouldn't have been here right now," Parvinazar said.
He was in the hospital and unconscious for several days. He regained consciousness on his son's 15th birthday.
