Do not forget importance of having automated external defibrillators in schools

July 10, 2020

It is always great to read a story about bystanders saving a life by performing CPR on a victim of a sudden cardiac arrest (”Duo helps save heart attack victim,” July 3). Congratulations to George Ponticello, the survivor, and to the Severna Park seniors, Jimmy Patz and Jack Peterson, who performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until the paramedics arrived eight minutes later. These saves are newsworthy because for every survivor of sudden cardiac arrest there are approximately ten victims who die.
