Madison Police say two Good Samaritans came to the aid of a woman who believed she was having a heart attack Tuesday morning.
The two Madison residents heard the woman call for help around 9:10 a.m. while walking near the Capitol Square.
A 38-year-old man ran across W. Main St. and caught the woman as she fell, preventing her head from hitting the sidewalk.
A second 53-year-old man also came to the woman's side and called 911.
The men were coached over the phone as they performed C-C-R for a couple of minutes on the woman until first responders arrived.
Police say that thanks to the life-saving efforts by two complete strangers, the woman was breathing. Officers checked on Wednesday morning, and say the 64-year-old was still very much alive and in the ICU.
Madison Police will be nominating the two Good Samaritans for departmental citizen recognition awards.
