CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - A nurse is calling her co-workers guardian angels after they saved her life.

Early Borja is nurse a Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center and had quite a medical episode over the summer.

Borja was in the car with her husband in July when she suffered what she thought was an asthma attack. It became more serious when she lost consciousness. Her husband drove her to the emergency room at Sharp Chula Vista, where a team of nurses, respiratory therapists and Dr. Nyda Pamintuan saved her life.
Borja was revived and a few days later she was discharged from the hospital.

On Thursday, she met the team that helped bring her back and also presented the doctor who led the effort with the Guardian Angel award.

“I’m back alive working because of you,” said Borja through tears as she thanked the team.

Borja has worked at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center for 27-years.
