It was his wife's quick thinking and the preparedness of emergency responders that saved one Appleton man's life after he experienced sudden cardiac arrest in his home last year. 46-year-old Andrew Haskins was able to meet and thank the Gold Cross Ambulance and Appleton Fire Department personnel who saved his life at a gathering at Gold Cross Ambulance. "Thank you for doing your job so that I can do mine," Haskins said. "My kids are young. They need their dad. My wife needs a husband." August 24th, the day the incident occurred, was just like any other day for Haskins. "I came home from work, I was doing a workout with my kids, and I finished it up," Haskins said. That's when Andrew collapsed. His children immediately alerted his wife, Doriann Haskins.
