In brief: Call 911 + aspirin
Call 911 and have them chew an aspirin.
The time it takes them to get emergency care is the greatest variable to survival.

In brief: Heart attack
Aspirin then get them to a hospital asap.
For cardiac arrest initiate chest compressions and call for help starting CPR . Some buildings have automatic defibrillators. Take a class in CPR you may save a life.
