McKinney Father Survives Widow-Maker Heart Attack

Heart attack can strike at any age and some people don’t know they’re at risk for one until it’s too late.

34-year-old Vicente Torres, of McKinney, never thought twice about his risk until he suffered a heart attack that nearly killed him.

The father of one considered himself “fat-fit:” overweight, but still active.

“We did river trips, hiking, bike riding, just anything to be active and outdoors,” said Torres.

The day before Father’s Day of this year, Torres experienced sudden and severe chest pains and says he was nauseous and vomiting repeatedly.

He says he felt the heat leaving his body.

“What was worse than the pain was that cold feeling. To me, it was like, if you could feel what death feels like, that’s what it feels like,” said Torres.
