Cardiac arrest victim saved twice by same co-worker, EMS crew

What are the chances of this happening?!

A 55-year-old Nucla man who was finishing work on a construction site in Mountain Village on Monday suffered a cardiac arrest but was saved by the same co-worker and the same EMS crew who helped him before following similar circumstances. 

The man's co-workers immediately began CPR and called 911. Within seven minutes, first responders arrived and were able to help the man who was taken to Telluride Medical Center Emergency Department in Telluride.
