[UPDATE] Woman Suffers Apparent Heart Attack in Two-Car Crash

Police officer administers CPR to get pulse.

A woman was hospitalized after suffering what appeared to be a heart attack following a two-car accident Friday  at noon on Foothill Boulevard near Wabash Avenue.

Driving west on Foothill Boulevard, she ran into a Chevrolet Malibu that was pulling out of the Glendora senior center. Her Buick Regal wound up in a yard and hit a wall, said Glendora Police Lt. Jamie Caldwell.

She went into full cardiac arrest, he said.

Using CPR, a Glendora Police officer managed to get her heart beating again, Caldwell said.

She was transported to Foothill Presbyterian Hospital. The driver of the Chevrolet Malibu did not require hospitalization, Caldwell said.

The officer, who responded to the scene at 12:35 p.m., discovered that the woman had no pulse. The car was front-first against the wall.

* [Editor's Note]  The officer who administered CPR to the woman was Officer Fenner. Glendora Police has confirmed the woman who suffered the heart attack died Saturday afternoon at Foothill Presbyterian Hospital. Although there have been claims about speeding and accidents  on Foothill Boulevard where the accident occurred, Lt. Rob Lamborghini said accidents are not very frequent in the area.
