Neighbors save the life of runner after heart attack

Carlos Salazar of East Lyme was running through his neighborhood on July 9 when he had a heart attack. His neighbor Jen Genta, a licensed nurse practitioner, found him lying in the street with no pulse, and along with neighbors Mark Gleason and Christal Cupp, performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Doctors found a 98% blockage of his left anterior descending artery, a condition with slim odds of survival. Thanks to the quick actions of his neighbors, Salazar was revived and is recovering at home after receiving a stent in his artery.
