On Halloween at 9 a.m., Clyde Livingston, the custodian at Canton High School for more than 30 years, started to experience a severe, burning pain in his chest.

“I thought the pain would go away, but then it started going down my arm,” says Livingston, 59. “Then I knew exactly what was going on.”

Livingston was having a heart attack. His fellow employees in the kitchen at the school called 9-1-1 immediately, and the school’s health department got involved to help.

Within minutes, the Town of Canton Fire & EMS Department’s ambulance arrived, and an EKG test by paramedics on the scene confirmed that the patient was indeed having a heart attack – of a type known as an ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) that is caused by a blocked artery.
