He was technically dead.His heart had stopped beating.His clothes were burning. And two bystanders started CPR on the 12-year-old boy, saving his life.
Today, Ken Nilson is a firefighter in Bremerton, Washington.
“It was an experience that would profoundly change my life forever,” explains Nilson.
He makes it a point to teach young children ways they can help save lives with CPR. His mission is to help as many people as possible have the same chance he had.
After all, says Nilson,“they could be saving my life again.”
