I think everyone owe's Ali Krieger's ex boyfriend, Brent Wise a debt of gratitude.
In late January, 2006 Ali was struggling to catch her breath. She called her doctor due to the discomfort and made an appointment for the following morning. After the irregular breathing and erratic heart rate would not subside, pre-med student Brent insisted she go to the hospital. While in the Emergency Room, the realized she was forming blood clots in her lungs, forming a pulmonary embolism, which was actually causing multiple small heart attacks. Ali later acknowledged that the doctor's told her that had she gone to sleep that night, there's a chance she never would have woken up.
Nice save, Brent.
