Austin McAnena

On a training run at age 27, Austin told his friend his chest felt tight and suddenly collapsed. She immediately called 911 and a minute later, a good Samaritan stopped his car to start CPR. EMS administered an AED within four minutes and Austin was rushed to the hospital where he was put into a medically induced coma. With no symptoms or warning signs, Austin was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He survived a second cardiac arrest on October 24, 2018.
