AUSTIN (KXAN) - The runner who suffered a cardiac arrest during Sunday's Capitol 10K was released from the hospital and is recuperating with his girlfriend's family in Georgetown, officials said Monday.
The man, identified only as a 25-year-old law student, was "technically dead" and revived by paramedics Bryan Greene and Chad Stowe, said Warren Hassinger with Austin-Travis County EMS.
The incident happened near the finish line on the final leg of the race. He went down near the intersection of Cesar Chavez and San Antonio Street.
Paramedics stationed along the race route came to the rescue in mere seconds before anyone even had time to call 911. They were able to get his pulse going again and the man regained consciousness.
The man is expected to return to law school soon.
