A man who suffered a fatal heart attack while driving in Shakopee last week may have saved others’ lives by driving his van off the road.


Shakopee police have identified the victim as 56-year-old David Aune of Apple Valley.

Police and firefighters responded to the call around 3:45 p.m. Thursday. They found a conversion van in a grassy ditch at the corner of County Roads 21 and 18 in Shakopee’s Southbridge area.

First responders performed CPR and used an Automated External Defibrillator before transporting Aune to St. Francis Regional Medical Center in Shakopee, where he died.
