MURRAY -- Cottonwood High School's football coaches got together Thursday to attend a life-saving class. It was in honor of one of their own who died in July. Thursday afternoon was the last of Cottonwood High's two-a-day football practices -- the last of hours of drills under the hot son. But when it was over, the coaches still weren't done. They were late for class. They were attending a four-hour emergency response class that taught skills like checking an unconscious person and CPR. It was organized by defensive assistant coach Dave Blaisdell. [snip]

So often a person learns CPR after someone has died. I don't know a simpler way to put it: when you are not current in your CPR training, you are playing Russian Roulette...but with the revolver most likely pointed at the head of a family member or friend.

Get trained. Please.
