Volleyball Player Resuscitated After Collapsing on Court

Defibrillator used to rescue Ouellette

ONTEORA, NY--Heroes and life-and-death situations are clich├ęs in the sports world, but they were quite real during Thursday's volleyball match between Onteora and Wallkill.

Onteora junior Makalia Ouellette walked over to coach Brittany Alexander during the match at Wallkill complaining that she wasn't feeling well and thought she might pass out. Alexander called timeout as Ouellette collapsed into her arms.

Alexander said she yelled for help and "people came running." After laying Ouellette flat on the court, Alexander immediately began performing CPR. Ouellette was unconscious and "turning blue and not breathing," Alexander said. Onteora assistant coach Nicole Saunders found Wallkill's automated external defibrillator and gave Ouellette a shock that caused her to regain consciousness.
