PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Hillsboro Fire and Rescue is one of the defendants in a $4.3-million lawsuit filed by the widow of 66-year-old Stephen Ricks.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1HfPMmC ) Diana Ricks’s husband was driving from Intel’s Ronler Acres campus where he was working through a contractor when he slumped over his steering wheel.

Rescuer workers arrived, and Ricks’s suit says her husband was in cardiac arrest for 14 minutes before rescue workers were able to get a defibrillator to work. He later died at the hospital.

Spokesmen for the city of Hillsboro and Physio-Control, the defibrillator’s maker, declined to comment on the lawsuit’s specifics. The city’s insurance company is looking into the claim.
