2 Men Suffer Heart Attacks Within 90 Minutes Of Each Other And Same Doctor Has To Save Them Both

In shocking case of coincidence, two men suffered heart attacks at a ping pong tournament in Irvine, California, within an hour and a half of each other.

According to KTLA, the startling event began when one of the players at the ping pong tournament collapsed.

Tony Kovacs was also playing in the tournament and rushed to help. Tony is a physician from Australia who hadn’t practiced in 10 years, but still performed CPR on the man.

Someone else called 911 and paramedics arrived and used a defibrillator to revive the man and take him to the hospital.

But it wasn’t over yet!

Tony noticed another man collapsing just 90 minutes later. Like history repeating itself, he rushed over to perform CPR while another player called 911 again.

To everyone’s surprise, the same 911 dispatcher answered the call and the same two paramedics from the first go-round came back! They used to the same defibrillator to revive the second man and then take him to the hospital.

“The chances of two in a row within an hour and a half, it just doesn’t happen,” said Tony.

The two paramedics told KTLA that they were both astounded by the fact that not only did two men have heart attacks within 90 minutes of each other, but that they both survived. So astounded, in fact, that they suggested they should play the lottery!
