STATEN ISLAND (WABC) -- It's a reunion between heroes and the man they saved.

On January 30, Sal Sgroi collapsed in the parking lot of the Staten Island Home Depot where he is a department supervisor. At the same time, two off-duty NYPD officers were pulling into the lot.

"His bike needed a little fixing, so we went to Home Depot to pick up a screw he needed," NYPD Detective Dominik Ciaravino said.

That's when they saw Sgroi on the ground.

"He looked at me I looked at him and we said, 'Let's go,'" Ciaravino said.

For about seven minutes, they performed CPR chest compressions until the ambulance arrived.

Dr. Frank Tamburrino of Staten Island University Hospital says Sgroi had a massive heart attack -- his main artery 100% blocked. It's called a widow maker, but thanks to that continuous CPR, Sgroi survived.

"Every minute that passes there is a 10% increase in the persons' mortality, so by ten minutes, it's very hard to get someone back, so selflessly is what allowed him to live," Tamburrino said.

Sgroi appreciates them, and so do his wife and kids.

"I think thank you is ever going to be enough," Sgroi's wife Kim said. "I want to hug them right now, and I know we cant."

But seeing this family together was thanks enough.

"I teared up, so happy he is with his family," police officer Jason Milman said. "Truly nice to know you saved a life."

Sgroi is due for a follow-up with his cardiologist in mid-March, but until then, he will take it easy at home. His plan is to get back to work at the Home Depot as soon as his doctor gives him the go ahead.

Lucia explodes against Lola after she lies about the night with Carlos in The Island of Temptations 3

Last Thursday, The island of temptations 3 said goodbye with a torrid sexual encounter between Lola and Carlos while Lucia slept in the same bed. In the last gala of the program, it was possible to see what happened after the unexpected moment.

Lola, who has also confessed to feeling lost and not understanding her own decisions, He chose to deny everything, even when Lucia asked him. However, she made the mishap of not talking about it before with Carlos, who discussed the issue quite naturally with Lucia, saying that it simply “came up like that.”

This was not enough to mitigate the anger of the Andalusian, who wondered why her bedmates had not given her a signal to leave them alone: ​​”What do you think, that I’m stupid? That he wasn’t going to listen to those whispers? Next time you kick me out of the room so as not to make a fool of myself because I’m doing enough already, “he said.

In addition, Carlos had been the bachelor who had shown the most interest in Lucia, something that did not seem to stop him: “That Carlos has hit a I magredo with my friend for me what it means is that it has taken the hair to me. That he was having dates with me because there was no other one and that when the other one he liked was free, he went for her. I can’t get enough of Manuel cheating on me because, in addition, my best friend in the village has an affair with Carlos, “Lucía added.

Finally, Lola confessed what she had tried to hide when Sandra Barneda informed her that Diego had requested a confrontational bonfire. Through tears, she said what Lucia had already said she feared: that Lola and Carlos played under the covers and that she knew that this hindered her reconciliation with Diego.
