Keep Mike “Lucky” Lukowiak in your thoughts.

Mike, a buddy of mine had a big heart attack after apple cross yesterday and is in a medically induced coma. @xc62701 started CPR on him but I don’t know all the details. Mike is such an awesome person. Hoping he comes out of this with an even bigger smile and zest for life.

Thanks @David Taylor. Yea this has been insane. Thankfully we were all there when he collapsed. I started cpr then medics arrived to work on him and get him to hunterdon medical center. He's in bad shape. The latest update is he's on a ventilator in an induced coma. They are going to try to wake him later in the week and assess if there was any brain damage due to oxygen loss.

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers...

That is terrible to hear. I hope he improves with each day and a full recovery is on the horizon. I'm sending positive thoughts to Mike and his family.

I guess it was very similar as one of his arteries was completely blocked. Not just due to a buildup either. The doc said it was "bad luck" that a piece of plaque must have broken off and clogged his artery. They immediately put a stent in and his heart is now functioning fine. It's the lack of oxygen to the brain they are concerned about.
