Fans Help Save Man's Life At Notre Dame-Michigan Game

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A Notre Dame fan who had a heart attack during last weekend's game at Michigan survived to watch the final touchdowns from a hospital bed, the school said Thursday.

Leo Staudacher's heart stopped during the second quarter of Saturday night's game at Michigan Stadium, the school said. The 69-year-old Bay City man survived thanks in part to one bystander who performed CPR and others who called for a medical team who used an automated electric defibrillator on site.

"My family watched while they shocked me with the paddles," Staudacher, who was visiting Ann Arbor with his sons ages 45, 48 and 50, said in a statement released by the school. "But it was the fans and their prompt CPR that saved my life."

The medical team then took him to the University of Michigan Health System's Cardiovascular Center for treatment, where he was able to watch part of the final quarter from an intensive care unit bed – and saw Michigan's thrilling 35-31 win.

`'I saw the last two touchdowns from the ICU unit," Staudacher said. "It was great to witness an amazing match-up between two old rivals – at least for the first quarter and half anyway."
