VIDEO: A Marana woman is getting a second chance at life thanks to a Northwest Fire crew. On Dec. 17, Amanda Burgos was in the waiting room at an urgent care clinic when she went into cardiac arrest. An employee there started CPR on the 62-year-old woman before Northwest Fire arrived. Burgos says she remembers her name being called several times by paramedics, but that's it. A whole team from Northwest Fire Stations 34 and 39 performed CPR on Burgos for more than an hour. Paramedic Matt Storms, Captain Eddie Croy, Paramedic Don Patch, Firefighter Brandon Marchello, Firefighter Chris Underwood and Battalion Chief Dave Resnick were able to meet Burgos in person on Monday.
