Country Star Scotty McCreery isn’t just the talented musician we know and love – The former American Idol champion is hailed as a hero and a lifesaver, according to the Newark Advocate
Elderly couple, Judith and Kennith Garloch (from Newark, NJ) became fans of Scotty’s during the 10th season of Idol (of which Scotty won). Judith watched the show but Kenneth eventually came around. In fact, they usually watched their own programs apart.
“Usually I watch TV downstairs and he watches westerns and sports upstairs,” but “He started liking Scotty and he’d come down and watch (Idol) with me.”
One night while they were watching Idol, Kenneth felt his wife’s head hit on his shoulder and noticed that she was not asleep. She was having a heart attack. He called 911 and the firefighters soon arrived and stabilized her condition. Judith received a pacemaker soon afterwards. While she gives credit to everyone involved in saving hr life, she gives special credit to Scotty:
“If (my husband) hadn’t been with me, watching Scotty McCreery, he wouldn’t have found me until hours later,” she said.
Ever since she has bought every album the young Star has released. She even got to thank Scotty in person at a concert recently.
