ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia man suffering from cardiac arrest drove through his neighbors home and later died, fire officials said.

South Fulton Battalion Chief Markus Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that firefighters initially thought someone inside a home needed medical attention Thursday morning.

Jones said when firefighters arrived they realized a car plowed through the lower half of the house. The driver of the car was in cardiac arrest. The man was hospitalized and later died, Jones said. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Investigators said the man was backing out of his driveway across the street when he went into cardiac arrest. He continued to back up and drove through the neighbor’s home, Jones said.

No one inside the house was injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
