HOLMESVILLE, Ohio — When Mike Brown left work on May 26, no one expected he'd be back. No one expected to see him alive again.

But, Brown beat the odds. He not only survived the cardiac arrest, he's returned to work and is on his way to making a full recovery. And, were it not for a portable Automated External Defibrillator and the four shocks delivered before he even left the grounds of Feikert Sand and Gravel, his story would read much differently.
