An elderly man dropped dead while he was voting on Monday in Southfield Township, Michigan, but fortunately registered nurse Ty Houston revived him.

Houston was filling out a ballot when he heard an elderly woman scream for help because her husband had stopped breathing.

Houston told DetroitNews.com: "He was dead. He had no heartbeat and he wasn't breathing. I started CPR, and after a few minutes, he revived and started breathing again. He knew his name and his wife's name."

The first words from the elderly man were: “Did I vote?” 

Paramedics rushed the elderly man and his wife to William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, reports DetroitNews.com.

And to answer the question, yes, he did vote.
