Lady Gaga Fan Resuscitated After Heart Stops Mid-Concert
Talk about a diehard Lady Gaga Fan!
Tuesday night Crystal Thornton, 33, and her best friend, Christina Tugman, headed to Lady Gaga's Monster Ball in Nashville, Tenn. But during the show's opening act, Thornton suffered a seizure and her heart literally stopped beating, CNN reported.
"She stopped breathing, her eyes rolled back in her head, and her body started twitching," Tugman said. "I was asking if she was OK, and she wasn't responding."
Tugman ran to the lobby to get help, and within one minute, an EMT reached Thornton. "[She] was unconscious with no heartbeat," the EMT said.
Using a portable automated external defribillator, paramedics spent more than five minutes until they were able to get Thornton's heart beating again. She was then rushed to an area hospital.
By Friday afternoon, Thornton was listed as in stable condition; her health scare was cause by an undetectable genetic condition.
While Thornton is thankful to be alive, she hasn't gotten over missing out on the Monster Ball. She said: "I am so mad I missed the concert."
