When a young college student collapsed during class, nobody was prepared to perform CPR. The minutes ticked by, well into brain-damage territory, and still nobody stepped up. When security arrived, more precious time was lost because they left their equipment in the car.
This is not a cautionary tale. It’s Cory Wilson’s story.
Just last year Georgia Southern University had only nine automated external defibrillators (AED) on a campus of over 20,000 students.
Cory’s death motivated The Wilson family to raise money for accessibly located AEDs. The university now has 148
Had one person initiated CPR, Cory’s chances of survival would have increased 10 to 17 percent. That’s enough to have saved his life.
Learn CPR today. Be a hero.
