PLAINSBORO -- Fast-responding EMTs and police treated a 15-year-old student who went into cardiac arrest at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North Monday, police said.

Emergency responders were called to the school at 1:01 p.m. after a male student in line at gym class collapsed and began having a seizure, police said.

Two minutes later, police and EMTs arrived to find the gym teacher performing CPR on the student, who was in cardiac arrest. They used a defibrillator to restart the teen's heart, and he began breathing on his own, police said.

The student was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for further treatment.
