Sudden cardiac death -- it is as scary as it sounds. Your heart just completely stops for no reason. For the man we talked to, when he crossed the start line of the Akron marathon a couple weeks ago, it was about to become his reality. "I felt great through the first mile," said Tony Lineman. For Tony Lindeman, this was his third Akron marathon, eighth marathon of his life. "After the second mile I lost all memory I don't know what happened." Those who witnessed it said Tony ran to the sidewalk and collapsed on his face. When he came to he was in the emergency room at Akron City Hospital.  "When the nurse came into the room told, me today was the luckiest day of my life." He hadn't suffered a heart attack, but sudden cardiac death. Where basically the electrical signal to his heart just stopped. "98% of the people that come in with a heart problem they can find and diagnose the problem. And the other 2%, a group that they aren't sure what happened and I fell into that category."
