Off-duty St. Lucie County firefighters saved the life of a man who suffered a heart attack while working out at Gold’s Gym in St. Lucie West on Thursday morning, January 10. Firefighters/paramedics Peter Villasuso and Greg Cosgrave were both working out at the gym at the time. Villasuso saw some commotion by a treadmill and went over to find people assisting a man on the ground. Villasuso started to monitor the man’s vital signs and soon Cosgrave, who had been working out in a different area of the gym, joined him to assist the man. CPR was started before the rescue crews arrived. The man was transported to a local hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery.
