    A Lauderhill family was able to reunite with the firefighters who saved their son’s life when he collapsed at a school last December.

    David Anglin was joined his mother and other family members in thanking firefighter Jake Marchese and the other rescue crew members from station 57 on Wednesday. Anglin suffered what medical officials said was an extremely rare medical emergency while at Royal Palm Elementary School on December 22nd.

    His mother, Sarah, watched as fire crews from the station – located across the street from the school – put David’s body on a stretcher and attempted to revive him.

    Marchese and his co-workers were able to get David breathing again, loading him into an ambulance and rushing him to an area hospital.

    After close to one month in the hospital, David was released and told his family he wanted to personally thank those who saved his life.
