SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
It was September when a KSLA News 12 employee noticed an emergency along the banks of the Red River and took a picture.
A participant in the annual "Dragon Boat" races had just suffered a massive heart attack. Shreveport firefighters and paramedics, there to participate in the race, rushed to the man's aid and saved his life.
Three months later, Tim Peters is thanking his rescuers for their heroism.
Peters delivered a simple message to the firefighters and paramedics who saved his life: "Thank you."
He was speaking to members of the Shreveport Fire Department's Special Event Paramedics for the first time since mid-September, when he was among those competing in the Dragon Boat Festival on the Red River.
But then came the heart attack, and bystanders -- along with on- and off-duty rescue personnel -- rushed to treat him.
Emergency officials would later say that Peters' heart attack could not have happened in a better place -- besides an emergency room.
