I'm not sure what this means...

Has surviving a sudden cardiac arrest become so commonplace that the victim can be disappointed that she missed the concert?


At Lady Gaga concert in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday was marred by drama as an audience member suffered a cardiac arrest during the show.

Paramedics rushed to resuscitate Crystal Thornton, 33, after she collapsed during a performance by one Gaga's opening acts at the city's Bridgestone Arena.

Thornton's heart was restarted using a portable defibrillator and she was subsequently airlifted to hospital. She is now expected to make a full recovery.

A statement from doctors at the Vanderbilt Medical Center reads, "The patient received incredible care from the moment she experienced problems at the Bridgestone Arena. It is only through a coordinated team effort that her successful outcome was possible."

Meanwhile, Thornton has revealed she is disappointed to have missed seeing her idol perform, adding, "I am so mad I missed the concert."
