4 Miami-Dade police officers honored for saving life of heart attack victim
Man thanks officers who helped him at Miami International Airport
MIAMI – Four Miami-Dade police officers are being credited with saving the life of a man who suffered a heart attack at Miami International Airport.
Surveillance video from Oct. 5 shows Josef Alhale fall to the ground while standing in the security line at the airport.
Nearby travelers and four Miami-Dade police officers helped to perform lifesaving efforts.
"I will never forget you," Alhale told the officers Wednesday.
Alhale is out of the hospital, thanks to the use of a heart defibrillator and CPR by the officers who acted within seconds.
"I was basically surrounded by angels that day," Alhale said.
Alhale had a chance to say "thank you" to the four officers, each of whom received a lifesaving award from him.
"I should have been dead, and I'm still here," Alhale said.
