Like her normal routine, Chlebek left home to drop her two kids at school before picking up her friend for the usual 3-mile walk. However, she felt a certain discomfort in the form of breathlessness and chest pain.

After returning back home, she decided to search the internet for chest pain. Soon she realized that it could be a heart attack. “I could no way have a heart attack at such a young age:” was the first reaction that she had.

When the pain could no longer be controlled, she decided to drive to the emergency department of a hospital and get herself checked. After arriving at the hospital, she told the nurse that she thinks she is having a heart attack and soon experienced sudden cardiac death.

The nurse immediately called a code blue as the doctors defibrillated Chelbek. Luckily, Chelbek revived after receiving just one shock. Later the doctors figured out that she has 95 percent blockage in her left anterior descending artery, which must be treated with a balloon pump to prevent future cardiac events that could prove fatal this time.
