MAUMELLE,Ark.–A wife credits CPR instructions she received over the phone from a 911 dispatcher for saving her husband’s life.

Becky Iverson from Maumelle says her husband had a massive heart attack in mid-July, but she never had formal CPR training.

Thankfully, the dispatcher walked her through the proper steps.

Doctors say if she didn’t do what she was told, her husband wouldn’t have survived.

The director of MEMS says they will be offering a new CPR training course to groups in hopes of saving another life.

“You’ve got to get out and get a CPR class because it’s essential because it can happen anywhere, whether it’s at home, in your car or at work,” Becky Iverson said.

Iverson’s husband is doing much better now, and will be coming home from rehab Thursday.
