A cardiologist competing in a California half marathon has saved the lives of two runners using CPR after watching one man collapse in front of him and another at the finish line after he'd completed the race.
Steven Lome had never witnessed anybody experience a cardiac arrest during a road race and did not expect to use his professional skills outside of work.
While running the Monterey Bay half Marathon in California on November 13 Lome was able to save the lives of two men in their 50s and 60s.
He recounted the miraculous feat on Twitter noting the 'crazy odds' of being at the right place at the right time for both men.
'What are the odds that two people have a cardiac arrest in one race? What are the odds they both make a full recovery? (Normally only 5 percent survive out of hospital cardiac arrest),' Lome wrote.
'I feel quite honored to work as a cardiologist and use my training for the benefit of others, but I never expected those skills to be needed in this manner outside of work.'
Both men said they felt healthy heading into the race but the fact that both survived can partially be attributed to the quick action of passersby who performed CPR and the availability of AEDs.
The incidents received national attention and offers lessons and reminders for runners of all abilities, Lome said after thanking medical volunteers on the site.
'Being alert and ready to bring an AED as fast as possible saved two lives. I still can't believe this happened.
'THIS is why we need to focus America on prevention of heart disease since the first symptom of heart disease in 1 out 3 people is sudden death like these two individuals almost succumbed to.'

The odds of this happening with the jab being what the jab is.
Good job doctor.
Jogging is the worst exercise protocol ever.
I’ll let someone else ask the question…
What are the odds??
Once again an American story that more than likely is covid shot related has to be published by a European source....weird. SMH
A little over the top but this is going viral
Stew Peter’s Presents DIED SUDDENLY: COVID Vaccine and Blood Clots
Almost as if…
Yep. From rare, to common, thanks to the jabs.
Here is the original site for the video on Stew Peter’s Rumble channel. It has over 7.5 million views so far. For Rumble that is a lot of views.
"Does 'Monterey's coast' mean anything to you guys?"
What are the odds??
If that wicked Haman had only asked for a nickel for every time that had been said...
Ages in 50s and 60s in a half-marathon not all that surprising other than two in the same race and treated by a cardiologist who also happened to be in the race. Praise be to God!
It would be interesting to know if either or both were vaxxed....
This one has another 240,000
And this one with Italian subtitles almost 1,500,000
You’ll have to follow them into a gym to find that out.
And this is a Doctor saying this. “Never”. But it’s just anecdotal, nothing to do with anything else happening recently, nosiree…
They NEVER seem to tell us that, do they?
Because such a question is not acceptable in polite company. It may, however, freely be asked as a condition of employment or entrance to any public place, or in some cases, former ‘family’ holiday celebrations. The rules of this new society are a bit confusing from time to time...
I think it is just inconsistent with the propaganda for us to learn of all the otherwise healthy persons who drop dead from the jab.
Yes, but probably something other than what you are thinking...
Is it more common?
Over 250M Americans have gotten at least one shot but I haven't seen any evidence that we're having more sudden cardiac deaths.
Do you have any data?
