GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - When you are in your 20s, you're probably anticipating college graduation, getting your first job and settling down with someone. Something most people aren't thinking about is their heart health.
Sudden cardiac arrest is a condition that can strike people of all ages. The condition occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. Sudden cardiac arrest usually causes death if it's not treated within minutes.
