Nick Gravina is one of the fittest firefighters on the South Metro force, but he started getting chest pain one day. Before he knew it, his co-workers were performing CPR on him and using the AED to shock him. He went under cardiac arrest 18 times and lives to tell the story. His story will be one of many told at the Sweet Hearts Ball  on February 8th. The fundraising event will raise funds for hands- only CPR and AED’s for schools.
