Good story:

Having lived in Fishers and Carmel, I can tell you that if you're going to have a heart attack officiating a game, you couldn't get much luckier than to do it in a game between schools in those two towns. You have a really good chance of there being several doctors in the crowd, and there were.

Good story!

As being an EMT I can attest to the extreme luckiness of this guy!

Asystole not only once but Twice! and then becoming conscious again after a set of shocks; Someone was definitely looking over him, I guess at least one person likes officials, the one who counts!
