90 percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital do not survive. 

That’s according to the American Heart Association.

The American Heart Association says you should prepare yourself by learning C-P-R. 
The technique can save the life of someone you love, a child, a spouse or a friend. 


So, we had a paramedic show us how to do it.


“You see somebody go down you check for responsiveness, sir sir can you hear me, no response — look for signs of breathing if there’s no signs of breathing you yell to somebody to get help put your hands in the middle of the chest and you start pushing down –push two inches deep at a rate of 100 to 120 beats per minute,” demonstrated Wayne Fahy. 

Even just pushing down on someone chest like Fahy did can double a persons chance at survival.
