On August 11, 2015, Glenn Molnar was standing on a tram platform at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, when he suddenly suffered a heart attack. Terrified, his wife began calling for help. Several bystanders came to the Molnars’ aide, as did a JFK employee.

Now, several months later, Molnar, alive and well, is searching for these unsung heroes to thank them.

“These people might not know it but they saved my life that day by administering CPR on me within one minute of the call for help,” writes Molnar on Tap Into Warren, a local New Jersey news website.

“Both men said they didn’t know how to do [CPR] but tried anyway,” continues Molnar. “Well, guess what guys, you did know because I’m alive and well today because of your heroism and selflessness.”

Molnar also gives special thanks to the anonymous airport employee who used a portable defibrillator to shock his heart back to life while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

“If it were not for these individuals, I would not be alive today or would have brain damage,” writes Molnar.

“I now get to see my Kids grow up, graduate high-school and college, get married and have kids,” he says.
