Officer Nikki Hotz from the Marion Police Department in Iowa was not supposed to be working Thursday, Nov. 1. However, Hotz was catching up on paperwork when a woman called to report that her husband was unresponsive and possibly having a heart attack. His location happened to be just a quarter mile from Hotz.
