The driver in a rollover crash on E John last month nearly died of a massive heart attack, a family member tells CHS.

The man in his 50s, whom CHS has agreed not to identify, is ready to be discharged from Harborview where he has been recovering from the heart attack and crash. His family member posted this update in the comments on the CHS coverage of the wreck:

I appreciate the people wishing my Uncle the best. Yes it was my uncle in the truck he had just left his dr. office and had a major heart attack. He was dead for ten minutes but thanks to the awesome response from the fire department and medical aid not to mention the incredible hero’s at Harborview he’s coming home tomorrow. God bless those who blessed us,

The driver’s nephew says the family would like to thank the unknown person who originally called 911 to report the crash. “If not for that call who knows how things would have turned out,” the nephew told CHS.

  1. Glad to hear this guy is on the mend. Something we can all (rich, poor, and in-between) be grateful for is the top quality cardiac care available here in Seattle. In many other places around the country, this fellow would not have had a good outcome. I urge everyone to remember this the next time the Medic One levy comes up on the ballot.
