OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City police officer certainly has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. She happened to be near the Bass Pro parking lot when a man crashed his truck after suffering a heart attack. And because of her quick thinking, he's alive today.

"As the old saying goes I kind of feel like I'm living on borrowed time," Carl Schreiner said.

He says he knows he's a lucky man to be sitting here today, after suffering a major heart attack in the Bass Pro parking lot just last Thursday.

"I buckled up and pulled out, and that was the last thing I remembered," he said.

His two young grandsons Jarrett and Major were with him.

"Earlier that day, his foot slipped off the pedal," said his 10-year-old grandson Jarrett Linden. "And I wasn't thinking much about it. I thought he accidentally did that again, but this time it didn't stop - and we kept going until we hit the car!"

Luckily Oklahoma City police officer Stacy Bowen was nearby, and started performing early CPR.

"I was just doing my job," Officer Bowen said.

Just last year, Officer Bowen helped save a little boy who was choking at a local restaurant. A surveillance video shows her springing into action. She also received the department's Lifesaving Award at this year's Oklahoma City police banquet for that action.

But this humble hero gives all the credit to God.

"He just keeps putting me in the right place at the right time I think," said Bowen.

But Schreiner and his family think otherwise.

"She is a special person with a special calling and I feel she is anointed," said Schreiner. "I couldn't have been in a better place - and my doctors have told me that, saying man you were in the right place at the right time! I can't think of another place you could have survived this."

He says Officer Bowen definitely went beyond the call of duty, and he's thankful she knew to perform early CPR. And both of them encourage everyone out there to learn how to do the same! It could help save another person's life.

You can take those lifesaving CPR classes through the Red Cross, American Heart association, or any local hospital.
