AHA: CPR training at school now required in 38 states
from American Heart Association via HealthDay
From Aug. 29:
An ordinary afternoon became extraordinary when Anthony Rosa Compres saved a man's life. As he and two friends walked through their Bronx, New York, neighborhood after school last fall, they saw a man lying on the ground surrounded by a crowd of people. Compres, a high school senior at the time, noticed the man wasn't breathing. His heart had stopped. Two weeks earlier, Compres had learned CPR in health class. With the training fresh in his mind, he performed chest compressions until an ambulance arrived.
