JEFF

(Clarksville, TN)  A city councilman in Clarksville, Tennessee woke up with chest pains and drove himself to the hospital while having a heart attack.

Jeff Burkhart didn’t even wake his wife or children.

Burkhart arrived at the emergency room in cardiac arrest and had to have a stent procedure.

Doctors say he probably saved his life by driving himself.

Burkhart should be released from the hospital this Wednesday.
