Two married, off-duty LAPD officers, Frank and Susan, were enjoying a dinner with their children on August 22, 2017, when they noticed a woman in need.

“It wasn’t a coincidence,” Frank said. “God put that in our path to be there and we were there for her that day.” Susan added, “God kinda orchestrated that whole situation but I think our LAPD training took on after that.”

Seventy-one-year-old Marcy Schneidmiller, who has stage 4 colon cancer and had recently left the hospital, had gone into cardiac arrest while out at the same restaurant with her granddaughter, Amanda.

That’s when she suddenly went into cardiac arrest and Amanda panicked. “I was just staring at my grandmother, watching her lose life,” Amanda said.

The two officers were luckily dining right next to Amanda and Marcy, and they immediately jumped into action. The officers started performing CPR on Marcy while other diners called 911.

“I would not be alive right now if it wasn’t for you,” Marcy told the officers — and her doctor agresed. If it wasn’t for their quick actions, Marcy would have died.

The officers then went above and beyond and escorted Amanda to the hospital after an ambulance drove Marcy. “They had to shock her four times to the heart to bring her back to life,” Amanda said.
