Fans normally hate the refs
EXETER, N.H. (AP) - February 10, 2011 (WPVI) -- There's only love between this crowd and a basketball ref. Craig Evans suffered a heart attack while refereeing a New Hampshire high school basketball game.
He says people in the crowd came onto the court and saved his life.
Two nurses, an emergency medical technician and a sports trainer performed C-P-R.
They also used a defibrillator to shock and restart Evans' heart.
Evans tells a local TV station he plans to go back to Raymond High and thank those who came his aid.
He also encourages more schools to get automatic defibrillators like the one that saved him.
