Heart attacks are the number one killer of adults in the United States.

Doctors say the early warning signs won’t necessarily knock someone to the ground.

Baptist Health Richmond hosted a training drill today to help the community recognize and react when it happens.

Doctors say if you start having shortness of breath and chest pains that might lead up to your shoulders or neck get help right away.

Fatigue is also a symptom.

At the hospital doctors say it’s helpful if a family member gives staff members your medical history.
