Judge(s): LEE

A truck driver alleged that he sustained a heart attack in the course and scope of his employment. His employer denied the claim, asserting that the heart attack was not caused by his employment. The trial court ruled that the claim was compensable and awarded the truck driver workers? compensation benefits. The employer has appealed. Pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 51, the appeal was referred to the Special Workers? Compensation Appeals Panel for a hearing and a report of findings of fact and conclusions of law. We affirm the trial court?s judgment.
