HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville District 2 City Councilman Mark Russell is recovering well after suffering a heart attack while officiating a high school football game this August.

Russell was back on the field tonight to give thanks to the people who saved his life.

The incident happened earlier this year.

Russell was treated at the scene and taken to Huntsville Hospital where doctors were able to successfully apply a stent to a blocked artery.

The council member says he feels better than he has in a long while.

“April and I are grateful on so many levels, and we thank everyone for the outpouring of concern and support we’ve received through this ordeal,” Russell while still in the hospital.

He confirmed his discharge via social media.
