Mr. Gimple drove out in his pickup truck and found Palo Alto cyclist Stuart Berman off his bike and in discomfort. Mr. Berman, who said he had been feeling chest pains after a 35-mile ride, was alternately sitting and lying down.
Mr. Gimple offered Mr. Berman a ride home, but they decided mid-way to head to Stanford Hospital instead. Medics told Mr. Berman, 61, that he was having a heart attack. After a stay of two days and a stent now in an artery, he is out and back on his bike, he said.
