This was a scary moment on the court last weekend during a minor league basketball game in New York that luckily ended in a good way.
One of the referees had a heart attack in the middle of the game. Fortunately, there happened to be a player named Myles Copeland on one of the teams who also works as a firefighter. He sprung into action from the bench when he saw what was happened, did CPR, and saved the guy’s life!
Paramedics arrived on the scene and were able to get him to a hospital. The latest was that he’s doing good and now set to have heart surgery.
As a nice little bonus nugget to the story… once he was safely at the hospital Myles and his teammates finished playing the game and WON!
