Shirley Simon of Manning knew something was wrong that morning. Simon was experiencing intense chest pain and shortness of breath as she arrived at the nursing home where she serves as the administrator.
During past chest pain episodes, Simon would rest for a few minutes until the pain subsided, but this time was different.
“The trip down the hall to my office felt like it was getting further away as opposed to me getting closer to it,” said Simon. “I dropped everything on the floor and immediately called 911.”
