Fort Lauderdale woman suffers heart attack on Caribbean cruise

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- A retired Florida doctor came to the rescue of his own wife when she suffered cardiac arrest during a Caribbean cruise.

Dr. Jim Lagocki of Sebring and his wife, Janet, were on a cruise to the island of Dominica when she fell ill Sunday.

Lagocki tells the Sun Sentinel that his wife survived the heart attack because a portable defibrillator got her pulse going again.

Air ambulances transported the couple Monday to Fort Lauderdale and then to their winter home in Sebring.
