Proof that Facebook isn’t always the worst: On May 31st, a man suffered a heart attack while biking along the Schuylkill River Trail. Luckily, he was spotted by a bystander with some CPR know-how who called 911. Having just about fully recovered from the incident, the man who suffered the heart attack wants to thank the bystander who saved his life, and he’s using Facebook to find them. Check out the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s Facebook status from earlier today, below.
