One night Gina Mischel, a mother of four young children, awoke with intense chest pain.  

In a panic, her husband, Aaron, drove Gina to Providence Everett. Once they parked, Gina said she felt fine. But moments later, she was slumped in her seat. Aaron couldn’t find a pulse. He started CPR with Gina lying on the sidewalk just outside the Providence Emergency Department and called for help.
