FLOOD WATCH Through Friday Morning - Strong Wind Gusts Likely Christmas Day

Son being honored for saving dad's life with CPR

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- A Syracuse University student and a cardiologist are being honored for teaming up over the phone to save the life of the student's father after a heart attack.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that Dale Hornstein had been on the phone with his cardiologist, Dr. Bill Berkery, when he collapsed after coming home from work Dec. 4.

Hornstein's 21-year-old son David was home studying at the time and got on his cellphone with Berkery, who instructed him how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation while singing to the beat of the Bee Gees' hit "Stayin' Alive."

An ambulance crew arrived and took the elder Hornstein to a hospital, where he underwent surgery. He has since recovered.

David Hornstein and Berkery are receiving the American Heart Association's Heartsaver Hero Award Thursday night.
