They don't always work, but at least they are starting to show up on the sideline

High school football player dies after collapsing during game

WYFF Greenville

Rouse was given CPR and shocked with a defibrillator before the ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital. Players and coaches from both sides prayed as medical personnel tended to Rouse. Hartsville was hosting Crestwood.


It's tragic that this player died, but not all sudden cardiac arrest victims come back. The positive aspect of this tragedy is that the authorities had an AED at the game. Ten years ago, you would have had a very difficult time finding an AED at a high school sports event.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
