DENVER (CBS4)- Two off-duty Colorado State Troopers helped a man who seemed to be having a heart attack 30,000 feet in the air.

The troopers were on a business trip from Denver to Atlanta when a fellow passenger started having chest pains.

The man stopped breathing and was unconscious.

Lt. Col. Brenda Leffler and Maj. Steve Garcia used the on board defibrillator to resuscitate the victim. He was breathing but unresponsive when he was rushed to the hospital in Atlanta once the plane landed.
