Kapolei man thanks good Samaritans, first responders who saved his wife's life

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Kapolei man thanked good Samaritans and first responders on Sunday after they helped to save his wife's life.

Doctors recently diagnosed Lindsey Faletagaloa with a rare stage four cancer that started in her salivary gland and spread to her lungs and spine, according to her husband, Travis.

Faletagaloa told Hawaii News Now that after a consultation at St. Francis on June 22, Lindsey went into cardiac arrest in the building's parking lot.

A cleaner at the hospital who saw her collapse alerted a security guard and his partner who performed CPR and called 911.

Faletagaloa is now recovering and on Sunday afternoon her family thanked those who rushed to her aid.

"I know my wife was scared, so God sent her these guardian angels to swoop in and reassure her that everything was going to be okay," Travis Faletagaloa said.

His wife Lindsey is currently being treated at the Kaiser Moanalua Medical Center. Her family has set up a GoFundMe account here.
