Automated external defibrilators, or AEDs, can be a lifesaver when someone has a heart attack.

The AED provides an electric charge to jump start a heart during potentially deadly interruptions of the heart's normal rhythm.

John Gillespie got first-hand experience with the technology.  The equipment is available in some public places and businesses.  Gillespie's co-workers used the AED to save his life.  They shared their story with News 2's John Pastorek  to help you "Reduce Your Risk".
