A good family friend has passed away... He was on his way home i believe and he stopped at a local costco because he was having chest pains so he sat there on the floor "eating aspirin" to help the chest pains. He called his wife and told her he was going to go to the er and see what was going on so he got in his car and started driving there he got within a few hundred feet of the er and had a heart attack and died while driving and he hit a building. The heart attack killed him not the impact. He was a loving man and he left behind a 13 year old boy and a 10 year old boy along with his wife. Keep the family and good thought and send prayers your prayers to the family.
No one belived it was a heart attact because he showed no symptoms before but in fact he had been having chest pains for 2 weeks but did not tell his family.
The whole story is very unfortunate and if any of you live in Folsom CA and have seen the memorial next to the dental office that is right next to mercy hospital that is for him.

Keep the family in good prayers.

Sad indeed.
Let this incident bring awareness to calling EMS/Paramedic-FireFighters for assistance instead of trying to handle things yourself.
His family is in my thoughts.

How terrible. I just can't even imagine something like that happening. Losing my son or my husband would be my absolute worst nightmare... so horrible to even think about.

I'm really sorry to hear about that.. you're in my thoughts.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I've had a close run in myself a few years back.

Guys, if you ever have chest pains or what really fells like super intense heartburn, go see a Doc ASAP. I got lucky and an ambulance picked me up with less than an hour to spare after someone saw me pass out next to my truck.

And this was at age 18 with no previous history.
