In this Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012 photo, Mary Tappe holds up the defibrillator that she keeps in the trunk of her automobile during a work break at the Western Union headquarters in Englewood, Colo. Tappe owes her life to bystanders' willingness to offer help. In 2004, she collapsed at her office in Iowa. A co-worker called 911; another quickly began CPR and someone else used the office's automated heart defibrillator. An ambulance took Tappe to the hospital, where doctors said her heart had stopped.
