MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak says he feels ‘better than before’ about a month after suffering a heart attack.

Rybak made the comments Sunday. He says he is feeling good and has more energy.

Rybak also says that the signs of a heart attack weren’t quite what he expected. He said he thought a heart attack would feel like a stabbing in the chest. But instead, he says it felt like an elephant was on his chest and he couldn’t breathe.

He says he had a heart attack because of genetics – but because of his healthy lifestyle, he had zero heart damage.

He says it’s a reminder that it’s important to stay healthy and stay in shape.
