Former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is recovering from a heart attack he had over the weekend.

He felt chest pains while cross country skiing Saturday and his friends called 911. He'll be OK, but it's raising questions. Rybak lives a healthy lifestyle. He exercises often and eats right. He had no signs of heart trouble beforehand.

We talked with Dr. Robert Wilson, a University of Minnesota Clinical Chief, about heart attack risk factors.
