Albanians under "Cardiac Arrest"

March 21, 2006

Albany - Some unlikely Albanians were arrested on the steps of the courthouse Tuesday afternoon. But don't worry, it's for a good cause!

Sheriff deputies arrested a couple of folks in the sting. To post bail, they have to raise $1,000 or more for the American Heart Association. Organizers hope the annual "Cardiac Arrest" fundraiser will raise more than $40,000.

"The money will be used for cardiovascular research," said Fran Zolomy, American Heart Association. "A number of the institutions in Georgia will be given grant money they can use to do research, and also for education programs and material that we can use right here in Dougherty County."

The fundraiser is sponsored by Palmyra Hospital. Heart disease is still the number one killer of Americans.
