Walton County Commissioners recognized Walton County Fire Rescue and EMS personnell at last week’s Board of Commissioners meeting for helping safe the life of Angel Webb after she went into cardiac arrest a few weeks ago. Webb was in attendance to add her thanks to those who had helped save her life. Walton County EMS Director Ronnie detailed the events that happened that day.

Web arrived home at about 9 p.m. experiencing chest pains and nausea and knew something was not right. Her husband called 911 and the first responders from WCFR and EMS arrived to find her in cardiac arrest. She was experiencing a heart attack. While en route to the hospital, Webb went into cardiac arrest. The crew was able to get her back. She went into cardiac arrest two more times at the hospital but was able to be revived. 

Webb received an emergeny cardiac cath and stent to open her artery and three days later she was released from the hospital and, according all accounts, she “is doing great.” At the meeting Webb thanked the crew for all they did to help save her life. Recognized for doing so were paramedic Andrew Norris and EMT Cody Eberhardt from Walton County EMS, and Justin Bowman with WCFR.
