Body

On June 10th, while pushing a shopping cart at the Leon Valley H-E-B, an elderly man clutched his chest and fell to his knees. Nearby shoppers, Mr. Dennis Cortez and Mrs. Lirio Cortez, rushed to his aid and assisted him to the floor. They called out for help, and several H-E-B Employees responded to assist.

He later regained consciousness and was transported to the emergency room, where he fully recovered.
