Matthew Cobb

Matt, 20, was at work on a forklift when he collapsed in cardiac arrest.  His co-worker called 911 and administered CPR with the help of another co-worker until paramedics arrived with an AED. He was shocked three times before being transported to the hospital. Once there, he was put in an induced therapeutic hypothermia. Doctors could not find the underlying cause of Matt’s cardiac arrest, but determined that a cardioverter-defibrillator should be implanted in the event his heart stops again.
