A man is recovering after suffering a heart attack during the Twin Cities 10 Mile earlier this month.

Fellow runners rushed to help 25-year-old Tyler Moon of Eden Prairie after he went into cardiac arrest.


Moon was told his heart may have stopped for up to 15 minutes.

Moon is feeling well and is thankful for everyone who helped him survive.

"When they ran up, they said 'I'm a nurse, I'm a doctor,'" Moon said. "They worked in tandem to help everything and help me live." 

After spending time at Mayo Clinic, Moon still doesn't know why his heart stopped.

"Still a mystery, I'm not sure we'll ever get an answer," Moon said.

Moon says he hopes to run in another race in the near future.
