David was fortunate that being at the ceremony for Stoops EMSA was on the spot when needed. Rapid medical response to strokes is the key to mitigating repercussions from a stroke.

Had he not been at the ceremony medical response could easily have been 30-45 minutes later and he condition much worse.
