GREENVILLE, SC. — A woman is crediting a survey on Facebook for saving her life.

Sammy Marler took a heart risk survey she came across on social media and decided to take it, WSPA reported.

The woman said she did not thnik she had any heart problem symptoms. Her survey results led her to call a cardiologist. It was at an appointment that she learned she had four blocked arteries and was in need of bypass surgery.

“I said to my surgeon, ‘Would I have had a heart attack had I not taken the survey’ and he said probably worse than that,” Marler said, according to WSPA.
