    Detroit Free Press - A Notre Dame fan who suffered cardiac arrest during last football weekend's game at Michigan survived to watch the final touchdowns from a hospital bed.

    The school says 69-year-old Leo Staudacher's heart stopped beating during the second quarter of Saturday night's game at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. The Bay City man survived thanks in part to one football fan who began CPR and others who called for a medical team.

    The medical team used an automated electric defibrillator and he was transported to the University of Michigan Health System, where he was diagnosed with having a heart attack.

    After treatment at the hospital, he watched part of the final quarter from an intensive care unit bed - and saw Michigan's thrilling 35-31 win.
