A Calhoun County deputy is fortunate to be alive after suffering a heart attack last month.
Deputy Nate Jordan was working out in the gym Feb. 17 when he began feeling bad. He drove himself to the hospital just to get checked out.
Moments later, he was in cardiac arrest. Dr. Gerald Skipper and his team are credited with saving his life.
A week later, Blountstown Police Chief Mark Mallory and Fire Chief Ben Hall presented a certificate of appreciation to the staff at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital to recognize their efforts that saved the life of Dep. Jordan.
“Deputy Jordan would not be with us today if it were not for the staff of the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital,” Chief Mallory remarks. “Our community is fortunate to have a local hospital with caring and knowledgeable staff there to help in our time of need.”
