Heart Attack Survivor Inspires Others

Article Date: Sep 18, 2013

Every Sunday you'll hear music pumping in Stinson Park. Everyone is welcome to take part in Zumba classes. 

The organizer is Reina Walls, a woman who hopes to get her community healthy. You may have an image of what a heart attack survivor looks like. You likely wouldn't picture Walls. Yet she is a heart attack survivor.  

As she headed into work at MUD two years ago, she says her heart stopped beating. She credits her coworkers for helping save her life. Walls told us, "immediately they started CPR, and when they found the CPR didn't help, they ran and got the AED device."

Doctor Atul Ramachandran saw Walls when she came into Alegent Creighton Health's Bergan Mercy Medical Center. He says Walls had a heart attack known as "the widow attack." He cleared the blockage.
