On Sept. 3, 2016, after a night of visiting friends, Mike Miller and his girlfriend of 11 years returned to the home they had moved into four days earlier. Just after 11 p.m., the two sat down on their couch, and that’s when Miller began acting strange. First, he told his girlfriend, Lyndsey Albright, that he felt tired. Then he took off his glasses and began crushing them in his hand. Believing he was having a seizure, Albright called 911. At that point he was no longer breathing, and she was instructed to begin CPR.
Albright didn’t know at the time, but Miller, then 42, was experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
Lyndsey Albright, Mike Miller, Jerod Baertsch and Katie Bowers pose for a photo at an award banquet where Baertsch and Bowers were honored for their work as 911 dispatchers helping to save Miller from cardiac arrest.
