Florida physician assistant student saves child's life with CPR

Florida physician assistant student saves child's life with CPR.

This article at Naplenews.com describes the events surrounding the Florida 25 year old physician assistant student who dove in to a closed community pool and rescued a young child by performing CPR.

Who says students don't make a difference!? 

Wow, how awesome!  That'll make you want to sit up straighter in your CPR class!

I've been CPR certified for a while now as my work in hospitals and also as a fencing coach requires it.  I have never been called upon to use the CPR skills.  And I admit to not feeling uber confident to do so at this point.  But I certainly hope my PA school training changes this and that I may be able to perform as admirably as this woman did in such a moment.
