LOS ANGELES — A runner who collapsed during this year's Los Angeles Marathon got the chance to thank those who saved his life.

The reunion took place Thursday at Fire Station 3 in downtown Los Angeles. Chuck Gold met the doctors, paramedics and firefighters who came to his rescue. It was a case of being in the right place at the right time.

"Had Mr. Gold had this event in his bed, the outcome would have been much different," said emergency room Dr. Mark Morocco.
