A Shocking Outcome

Gaines Adams, a defensive end with the Chicago Bears, died from an enlarged heart earlier this month in his hometown of Greenwood SC. (The medical term is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.)

That story brought back memories for us at the ballpark - especially for a Durham policeman, Gerry Elliot. He had the same undetected heart condition. Thankfully, his story has a much better outcome because we had a defibrillator nearby. WRAL TV5 News revisited the story today. Take a look, and consider investing in an automatic external defibrillator (AED) for your office!
