Elderly Man Drops Dead While Voting, Revived, Asks if He Voted


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.
