Howard Snitzer: The Man Who Survived 96 Minutes Without A Heartbeat (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In January, 54 year-old Howard Snitzer suffered a heart attack outside of a grocery store in Goodhue, Minn. Luckily, two first responders were across the street and quickly began CPR. Before long, a large group of rescuers, including a helicopter and team from the Mayo Clinic, arrived to help. Finally, after 12 defibrillation shocks, antiarrhythmic drugs and more than an hour and a half of continuous resuscitation, Snitzer's pulse returned. It had been 96 minutes since he had collapsed.
