Broken Arrow Heart Patient Credits LifeVest For His Survival

The News on 6 aired this story May 7, 2013

 

A defibrillator vest is saving lives in Oklahoma.  It's designed for people who have a weak heart or survived a heart attack. One Oklahoma man says the LifeVest saved his life twice.

It's been around for a few years now, but doctors say many heart patients don't even know it exists.

Two months ago Michael Hopkins went to the doctor because he was having trouble breathing.
