You may have a better chance of surviving a heart attack if it happens on a weekday, during the day, according to new research from the Mayo Clinic.

It found that the chances of dying are five percent higher it you go to the hospital at night or on a weekend.

The reason? There are fewer resources and fewer people working at those times.

And iIf you think you're having a heart attack, doctors say to chew an aspirin. It will thin your blood and improve the chance of survival.
