Jib Street suffered a heart attack right on the ice during a pickup hockey game in January.
Street recalled the incident to the TODAY show:
My heart had stopped pumping, and I wasn’t breathing, and my organs were shutting down.
Fortunately, Dr. Craig Bryant was playing on the opposing team. he immediately started during CPR:
I did realize how serious this was. Your brain can have irreversible damage at the four to six-minute mark…So this is one of those situations where time is extremely important.
Bryant called for a defibrillator, which the ice rink had, and used it to revive Street five minutes later.
“He’s my guardian angel,” Street said of Bryant . “I’m blessed to be here.”
