    Rock icon Little Richard is recovering after suffering a heart attack while at home with his family. It was a minor tremor and he wound up saving himself!

    Richard, 80, had a coughing fit and started to feel a shooting pain in his arm. He self-medicated, but later, it was revealed by his doctor that he had suffered a heart attack.

    "The other night, I didn't know I was having a heart attack," he said. "I was coughing, and my right arm was aching. I told my son, 'Make the room as cold as ice.' So he turned the air conditioning on, and I took a baby aspirin. The doctor told me that saved my life. Jesus had something for me. He brought me through."

    We're glad he was able to help himself and is still with us. Whew.
