Berks man thanks medical team that saved his life

SALISBURY TWP., Pa. - A Berks County man had the chance to thank the heroes who saved his life.

It was an emotional gathering at Lehigh Valley Hospital's Cedar Crest campus near Allentown on Thursday, as Shawn White of Bernville thanked the team of doctors that treated him last month.

White was watching his daughter's basketball game at Brandywine Heights Middle School in Topton when he suffered cardiac arrest.

"There were people there that came to my aid right away. They had an AED, and if it wasn't for that, I wouldn't be alive right now," he said.

White said he can't thank his life-savers enough, and he is doing much better now.

Brandywine's superintendent was also on hand for the ceremony.
