August 30, 2019 0 By Bertrand Dibbert


TONIGHT, A NORTH SHORE WOMAN IN SEARCHING FOR THE GOOD SAMARITANS THAT SHE CALLS ANGELS. THEY HELPED TO SAVE HER LIFE AFTER SHE SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK. THE 76-YEAR-OLD WOMAN HAD A FRIEND IN THE CAR WHO HAD JUST BEEN TREATED FOR CHEST PAINS. THEY BOTH MANAGED TO MAKE IT TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. AS KEN MacLEOD SHOWS US, THAT IS WHEN THEY SAY DIVINE INTERVENTION PLAYED A ROLE IN THEIR RESCUE. I DO NOT REMEMBER. Reporter: SHE IS JUST OUT OF THE HOSPITAL WITH AN IMPLANTED DEFIBRILLATOR BUT NO MEMORY OF THE HEROICS THAT SAVED HER. I AM LUCKY ALL MY LIFE. Reporter: SHE CERTAINLY WAS ON THE AFTERNOON OF MAY 30 WHEN SHE PICKED UP A FRIEND FROM AN OVERNIGHT STAY AT THE HOSPITAL. SHE WENT INTO FULL CARDIAC ARREST. Reporter: FORTUNATELY, MAUREEN WAS ALREADY WRITING THE BREAK AS SHE SLUMPED OVER UNCONSCIOUS AND KATHY REACHED OVER TO GRAB THE WHEEL GUIDING THE CAR TO THE ROADSIDE. I WAS PROBABLY WHAT YOU WOULD CALL HYSTERICAL. Reporter: IN WHAT SEEMED LIKE SECONDS, A WOMAN WEARING RED WAS OUTSIDE THE CAR. SHE SAID, ARE YOU IN DISTRESS? WE SAID YES, WE NEED HELP! Reporter: SHE IMMEDIATELY DIALED 911 AND THEN SNATCHED OPEN MARINE’S DOOR, RECLINED HER SEAT AND STARTED CPR. THE DOCTORS SAID, WITHOUT CPR SHE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT. Reporter: A NURSE AND HER POLICE OFFICER SONS ALSO STOPPED. NOW, MAUREEN IS ON A MISSION TO IDENTIFY THOSE WHOM SHE CALLS HER ANGELS. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND THEM AND THANK THEM THAT I AM ALIVE. Reporter: SHE DOES NOT WANT TO FORGET HER FRIEND OF 40 YEARS OR THE ROSARY BEADS BY HER SIDE. I HAVE A LIGHT, A LOT OF FAITH. KEN MacLEOD, WBZ NEWS. THAT WILL BE A GREAT REUNION. SHE WILL FIND THEM.
