An elderly man was filling out an absentee ballot Monday afternoon in S outhfield, Michigan when he collapsed and appeared to have died.
Ty Houston, a home care registered nurse who was also at the same voting location, ended up performing CPR on the man and said that "he was dead" and "had no heartbeat and [that] he wasn't breathing," reported Tom Greenwood and Rob Beard at The Detroit News.
After a few minutes, the man's heartbeat returned and the first thing he asked was "Did I vote?"
He was taken to the William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan.
A clerk at the office confirmed Houston's story.
