It began like any normal Saturday morning. Frankfort resident Kristen Walenga was cooking breakfast when her heart stopped beating.
Her son Ed ran up from the basement stairs and immediately began performing CPR until the Frankfort Fire Protection District paramedics arrived and took over.
“I collapsed to the floor,” Walenga said. “The only sign is that I was dizzy. After a few moments, my 11-year-old called 911. At that point, my black lab began circling me and howling. My kids knew that there was something wrong.”
