Ken Roosa was lucky to have the right kind of TV doctor a legitimate one at his side as he finished the USANA Champions for Change 5K on Saturday in Salt Lake City.
The Ohio 53-year-old collapsed shortly after the race and literally rolled into Mehmet Oz better known as Dr. Oz on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Larry King Live" and "The Dr. Oz Show" who rushed into action. Oz kept Roosa still and called for help after determining that Roosa was unable to breathe and had fluid in his lungs ("indicating pulmonary edema," according to Oz's Facebook page).
"He immediately dropped down to find out what he could do," Roosa said. "Had I not had Dr. Oz to hold me down and get others to help, it could have been worse."
