Heart attack vs cardiac arrest

February is American Heart Month and ABC57 would like to protect your heart by arming you with knowledge.

A heart attack happens when blood pumping to the heart is blocked, while cardiac arrest happens when the heart suddenly stops beating.

Cardiologists say the key is sticking to a heart-healthy diet and staying fit.
