You might not think of runners as potential heart attack victims,but it happens.
Cardiovascular activity has proven benefits.
But in some rare cases, that increased heart activity can cause cardiac arrest.
That’s what happened at a west Texas Gold’s Gym in December 2008. Member was running on a treadmill.
He had a heart attack, and wasn’t able to be resuscitated by staff or paramedics.
His family sued the gym, claiming that staff did not provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for the man.
And that the defibrillator (AED) located in the gym had dead batteries and was ineffective.
Even though some of these charges were thrown out in court. Gold’s Gym representatives still had to settle with the family.
