Fast Family Saves Dad with CPR

It’s not uncommon for folks in their fifties to have sudden cardiac arrest, and that’s exactly what happened to John recently while he was playing basketball with friends and family.

They immediately began CPR. A move that saved his life.

John is recovering, thanks to his fast-thinking family. Anyone who has served a heart attack will tell you how grateful they to the people who acted bravely and quickly by providing CPR.

Such a simple move can keep the brain functioning until the heart can be restarted.

Golfer Saves Man with CPR

She was on the 15th hole when she saw him laying face down in the grass.

Lucky for the gentleman, the North Greenville University junior, Lauren Childs, knew CPR, and was quick to respond.

Childs sprinted to the man and immediately began CPR, while her friends called 911.

He is improving in the hospital, and NGU finished second in the tournament.

Baby Safety Starts with CPR

Every day is Baby Safety Day in a parent’s handbook.

But many parents don’t know that it only takes 30 seconds for your child to drown. In as little as an inch of water. In fact, drowning is the second leading cause of death for children between 1 and 4. And the fifth leading cause for children under 1 year of age.

Besides fencing off your pool, and staying with them during bath time, CPR is a must. Parents would expect day care providers to know CPR, so why shouldn’t parents?

If you have an hour, you can learn CPR for both adults and infants.

Recently, several infants have been saved with CPR. Isn’t that all you need to know?
