Driver has heart attack in Huron County

(COLFAX TWP.) -- Huron Central Dispatch received a call Friday morning around 11:00 a.m. from a driver reporting that he might be having a heart attack. The 51-year old Owendale man had been heading south near the M-53/M-142 intersection in Colfax township when Central Dispatch advised the man to pull over and put his flashers on. Dispatch lost communication with the man, but could hear him struggling through his open cell phone. Deputy Steven Bismack from the Huron County Sheriff's Office and Officer Scott Zaleski of the Bad Axe City Police Department responded and found that the vehicle had crossed the northbound lanes, left the roadway, and came to a rest against the Maple Lane Motel. Both officers removed the victim from the vehicle after finding no vital signs and began resusitation efforts. The man began to show signs of life shortly before Central Huron Ambulance arrived and continued life-saving efforts. He was transported to the Huron Medical Center and later flown by helicopter to an out of area hospital. At this time, his condition is unknown.
