Imagine you're at your home, spending the day laying down sod in your front yard, you know, to make it look nice, AND to avoid a fine from the HOA.
When suddenly, chest pain like you have never experienced hits!
You're having a heart attack!
That's what happened to Gene Work from Pasco County, Florida.
His wife Melissa, says Gene was feverishly trying to get the sod down and when the heart attack hit.
Pasco County firefighters and paramedics arrived to treat Gene and get him to a hospital STAT, and all the while, Melissa says he was STILL worried about the sod and possible fine from the HOA!!
In a Facebook post, Melissa said:
"While he was having his heart attack, literally in and out of consciousness, he kept begging me to figure out the sod and have it put down because he didn't want it to go to waste and die. It's ALL he kept asking about literally during a massive heart attack."
While Gene and Melissa were en route to the hospital, Gene's brother stayed to help lay down the rest of the sod, when suddenly a little while later, a firetruck and an ambulance pulled up and rescue workers piled out to HELP lay the rest of the sod!
HUUUUGGE SHOUTOUT to the Pasco County Fire Rescue, and wishing you a speedy recovery Gene!
