Minn. man saved by 96 minutes of CPR
Howard Snitzer owes his life to an army of first responders
By Steve Sternberg
GOODHUE, Minn. — When Howard Snitzer clutched his chest and crumpled on a freezing sidewalk outside Don's Foods in Goodhue, Minn., he was wearing gym shorts, fresh from his daily workout. Across the street, at Roy and Al's Auto Service, the Lodermeier brothers were getting ready to close. A local high school teacher ran up.
"He said a guy had fallen on the sidewalk," Al Lodermeier says. At that moment, Don Shulte, owner of the grocery store, walked in. The three ran back to where Snitzer lay on the sidewalk. He wasn't breathing. He had no pulse. If he didn't get help soon, he would die.
