A Hartland Arrowhead High School student collapsed during Friday night’s basketball game against Catholic Memorial.
Arrowhead game managers rushed to the stands and revived the boy. An ambulance then took the child to a local hospital.
This is completely normal.
US high schools would do well to invest in external defibrillators.
GM Today reports:
A male student from Hartland Arrowhead collapsed during the Warhawks’ boys basketball game against Catholic Memorial on Friday night at 8:15 p.m.
Arrowhead game manager Jeff Stouse rushed to the stands with an automated external defibrillator (AED). Medical personnel on the scene then used a machine on the young man, and at 8:45 p.m., the Arrowhead High School senior was left on a stretcher and transported to a local hospital.
According to several witnesses, Student was alert and coherent when he left AHS.
“The biggest thing is for the kid to be right,” said Stous, who is also Arrowhead’s boys soccer coach. “But the whole NFL thing (with Damar Hamlin) goes through your mind.”
