CHICAGO - A man running in the Chicago Marathon has been revived by a paramedic after suffering an apparent heart attack.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford says the man in his 60s fell to the ground about 9:40 a.m. Sunday at Lake Shore Drive and Melrose Street on the city's North Side. He says a fire department paramedic used an automatic external defibrillator to restore the man's heart rhythm to normal.

The man was taken by ambulance to a hospital where his condition stabilized. His name was not immediately released.
