Adding Youth to the Chain of Survival

What if your daughter went to school tomorrow and didn’t come home? She didn’t run away; she was not kidnapped. She collapsed. In Math Class. You get a call from her friend saying she fell out of her seat and was shaking on the floor, and now she is not moving, and not breathing. They called 911 and help is on the way. No one in her class knows how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and the school nurse is out sick. How can this be happening? Doesn’t everyone know CPR? And isn’t there a defibrillator in her school? You rush to the school. The ambulance has just arrived and the emergency medical technicians are trying to revive her. But it is too late.
