WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Winston-Salem firefighter Tony Spagnoletti has 27 years of experience, but he wasn't expecting the kind of call he got last week — a close one — from "the widow-maker."

Spagnoletti suffered a major heart attack last Thursday while on duty at Fire Station 7 on Country Club Road. He returned Thursday, dressed in his Honor Guard uniform, to say thank you to his fellow fire-crew members and to EMS paramedics for helping save his life.
