A Public Service Post: Take CPR

You never know who’s life you might save….

A lot had to happen to keep Standley Lake High student Lindsay Hayden alive on Monday, and everything worked to perfection.

Lindsey, a 17-year-old senior, collapsed during class, slumping from her chair.

Classmate Cameron Durand knew CPR, and he didn’t hesitate; Lindsey wasn’t breathing.

I had to take CPR in order to coach my soccer team and it does take about five hours, but those five hours are nothing compared to being able to save someone’s life.

  1. Here’s another recent example of a lifesaving technique that everyone should learn. Gov. Mike Huckabee came to the rescue of a candidate for lieutenant governor of North Carolina who started choking on some food. Fortunately, he knew the Heimlich maneuver. See the article at:
