Matt Haught believed he would never see the year 2020. He did, thanks to Olmsted Township firefighters/paramedics. “I would not have been here if not for them,” the Olmsted Township resident said. “They never gave up. They gave me my life back.” The department received a call at 10:34 p.m. Dec. 29 about a man -- Matt -- complaining of chest pains. “I had been having chest pains across my chest and down the inside of both arms for a while, a few days,” he said. “I laid down and the pain would subside, but that night it wasn’t going away.” Lt. Joe Foecking and firefighters/paramedics Damon Schreiber, Kyle Haag and Rob Crowe were on the call. Once Matt was inside the squad, but before it left the driveway, Matt went into cardiac arrest.
