A Valley woman came face-to-face with the firefighters who saved her life and kept her heart beating after it stopped twice.

Michelle Dean was able to thank Phoenix firefighters from station 17 for saving her life after she collapsed at work. 

The woman's supervisor performed CPR on her and kept her alive until paramedics arrived. 

However, on the way to the hospital the woman's heart stopped not once but twice. 

Dean says she doesn't remember anything about that day after doctors told her she suffered cardiac arrest. 

She wanted to meet the firefighters who kept her heart beating, and on Valentine's Day she was able to do just that!

She had the firefighters sign a stuffed heart pillow so she can always remember them.
