You know the scene in a movie or a TV show when there is a medical emergency and someone yells out “Is there a doctor in the house?” Well that very thing happened in real life Monday night in Omaha during game one of the College World Series. Apparently the action taking place on the baseball field wasn’t the only excitement going on that night. During the game an elderly fan had collapsed in the stands and was unconscious. Fortunately for this fan there was a doctor in the house. Dr. Jerry Poche, the father of LSU starting pitcher Jared Poche, sprung into action and right away started performing CPR. Poche was able to revive the fan and help save the fan’s life. Here is Dr. Poche talking about the life saving incident after the game.
Here's what people had to say about Dr. Poche's heroic night.

Thank God there was a doctor in the house. I guess when you're a doctor you are never off of the clock. Because you never know when a situation like this may arise and you are immediately called into duty. Unfortunately Dr. Poche couldn't help revive LSU's College World Series chances as they were swept by Florida last night to lose the CWS championship.
