Acadian Ambulance was standing by at 2013 Festival International de Louisiane, when Mr. Barrilleaux suffered a heart attack.

“If this would have happened at home, I probably would have never woken up, so I’m glad it happened at the festival. I ended up having to have open heart surgery…I’m not ready to go, so I’m glad you guys were there. I believe in angels and heroes, and you guys were some angels.”
