CANTON, GA (WXIA) -- A Georgia State Trooper and a personal trainer were reunited on Wednesday, after an unusual meeting last summer.
The personal trainer saved the trooper's life after he had a heart attack. The trainer was recognized with the highest honor from the American Red Cross.
At 43 years old, Trooper Steven Walker had a massive heart attack after a hard run on the treadmill. Though he doesn't remember anything from that day in July, 2014, doctors told him he was gone for almost 10 minutes.
"It's a miracle," he said. "The only thing I can say is God was looking out for me."
"When I approached Steve, I knew there was no breath – there was no life," said personal trainer Judy Cox.
At 5-foot-5, Cox started CPR on the 6-foot-5 Walker.
