Claremore Woman Saved after Massive Heart Attack

Freddie Burson, 86, remembers the day in 2012 when she was getting ready to exercise with her friend. “When I got on the machine, I began to feel kind of strange,” she recalls. Freddie had maintained a regular exercise regime, even in her 80s. When she noticed something out of the norm, she paid close attention. “I laid down for thirty to forty-five minutes.” Thinking she would recover and resume her exercise, Freddie kept waiting until, “I began hurting in one of my arms.” Her friend became concerned and called Freddie’s daughter, Beth, a teacher in nearby Inola.
