Viewer: WCAU Meteorologist ‘Saved My Life’

Last week, after undergoing double bypass surgery, WCAU chief meteorologist Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz went public with his fight against heart disease, warning viewers about the symptoms.

Schwartz’s warning made an impact almost immediately, as one viewer went to the emergency room after watching the WCAU story and found out that his main artery was 99% blocked, just like Schwartz’s had been.

“I was watching the weatherman and the weatherman told me not to mess around and go to the hospital,” WCAU viewer Alan Aarons said in a recent interview with the NBC station (video after the jump).
