Fast thinking helps stroke victim survive

Always great to hear a story about stroke awareness and quick action, this one from the U.K.:

A grandfather is hoping to say a special thank you to two strangers whose prompt action may have saved his life when he suffered a massive stroke.

Dave Brint, 67, was walking along Cleveland Street when he collapsed against a wall unable to move down one side or speak.

Fortunately, two women passers-by went to his aid and asked an on-looker to call 999 (editor note: of course, in the U.S., that would be 911) immediately.
