Football player watches his team win after dying of a sudden cardiac arrest.

[ NB: There's more than a ten percent chance that you'll witness a family member or friend have a sudden cardiac arrest someday As you read the story below, think about how you will feel if that person stays dead because you didn't know what to do. Bob]


It's been four months since Breaux Bridge High School Sophomore Teddrick Lewis was on the football field. He went into cardiac arrest during a practice in May.

Teddrick is not playing ball anymore but Friday nights, he's back on the field with his team and he has his coaches to thank for it.

"Last thing I remember, I was on a helicopter," Teddrick recalled. "I was just hearing noise and breathing funny."

The Breaux Bridge sophomore collapsed on the field and became unresponsive. After that, his memory went hazy.
Coach Paul Broussard had just seconds to act.

"When we got to him, he was on his stomach so we rolled him over and our first thought was he was having a seizure," Coach Broussard said.
