Featured Patient Story - Denver Health's "Miracle Man": How a Denver Judge Survived Stabbing in Heart

Denver Judge David Blackett has a nickname around Denver Health. Doctors, nurses and medical workers call him their "miracle man" because he very nearly died one night back in 2019. Judge Blackett was working in his garage that night when he was the victim of a random stabbing. The attacker stabbed him in the heart to the point that he had no heartbeat, no pulse and wasn't breathing.
