Default Another Day in the Life...

I was substitute-teaching a speech class at Parkland College the other morning (I'm retired from there).

I was videotaping speeches, and a kid was talking about running marathons. Suddenly he stopped talking, and he put his hand over his face. I thought he had lost his place and was trying to remember what to say next.

But then he dropped to the floor, unconscious.

I told one student to call 911, another to call school Security, and I sat with the kid until help arrived.

As far as I know, he's okay now. But it was a pretty frightening experience.

Those events can be really scary. Had that happen in a meeting at work one day... in this case it was sudden heart failure. Fortunately we had AED's handy and we saved his life... RickO
