  Pregnant doctor delivers patient's baby just before giving birth herself The Kentucky obstetrician was in the hospital waiting to give birth when she jumped into action after hearing a patient in distress.Obstetrician Amanda Hess was preparing to be induced for the birth of her second child when she and her husband heard distress cries from another patient in the hallway.

Now he's thanking the people who saved his life. He was having a heart attack , but sought medical attention quickly enough to get the immediate care he needed. At least this once, they got a hug and a handshake from a person they helped keep alive.

Survivor: Father-of-two Ken Henning was reunited with the doctors who saved his life when he suffered a devastating heart attack . Patient : The 65-year-old works for a medical supply company and suffered a heart attack in early May while delivering a hospital bed.

Henning was on a delivery job when he started to feel sick. He was having a heart attack, but sought medical attention quickly enough to get the immediate care he needed.

Henning had emergency quadruple bypass surgery, but the next day his heart stopped functioning again. Doctors shocked him 50 times to keep him alive, and emergency personnel flew him to an Intensive Care Unit that could handle his serious situation.

For weeks, Henning was kept on a special treatment that assists the heart and lungs to move blood and oxygen through his body. Henning remained unconscious the entire time.

After all this, Henning not only survived. He made a full recovery.

So when he got the chance to return to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center to thank the doctors and nurses who kept him alive, he jumped at the chance.

It was a typical day for 43-year-old traveling nurse, Lynn Howard. She was visiting a patient at their home when she suddenly felt dizzy and lost consciousness. The Buffalo native woke up a few days later in a hospital bed with a breathing tube. Earlier this month, the mother of three suffered a sudden cardiac arrest - a condition so deadly that more than 90 percent of people don't survive. Clinically, she died. But luckily for Howard, the patient she was caring and her husband were paramedics.

After surviving a near-deadly heart attack , Ken went back to the hospital to thank the doctors and nurses who kept him alive.
