Quick-Thinking Coach, AED, Save High School Basketball Player

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.--Excited to be on Central High School's basketball team, freshman Hunter Helton was looking forward to another conditioning practice Monday after school.

But during the practice, Hunter, 14, suffered sudden cardiac arrest and woke up hours later at East Tennessee Children's Hospital (ETCH).

"I didn't know anything," he said.

Hunter has his basketball coach, Jon Higgins, a former University of Tennessee basketball player, to thank for waking up at all, Hunter said. When his heart stopped, Higgins performed CPR and used an automated external defibrillator to revive Hunter.
