RICHMOND--Gwyneth Griffin collapsed on her middle school track after a congenital heart defect caused her to go into cardiac arrest, her mother, Jennifer Griffin, told the House Education Committee this morning.
Ever since the incident last summer, the Griffins have been pushing for passage of “Gwyneth’s Law” requiring CPR training for bus drivers, teachers and students and placement of an automated external defibrillator in every school.
ATTITASH, NH – On Sunday, December 30, 2012, Brad Boehringer decided to go skiing at the Attitash Mountain Resort to celebrate the end of a great year. Boehringer is an avid skier and enjoys hitting the slopes when he has time off from his job as a flight nurse. He is also a member of the local rescue squad and as such is always sure to call his friends on the ambulance when he goes out on the slopes in case any extra help is ever needed. Little did he know that his phone would be ringing just seconds later.
