HR-3511 is a bill that we really need to see passed. It provides for broad, uniform Good Samaritan protection throughout the U.S.A.

Currently, Bystander CPR happens only about one-third of the time, frequently because of uncertainty about the issue.

Please urge your U.S. Representative to support this bill. Contact information can be found through

Teachers' CPR saves Richland student who collapsed

The Associated Press | 12/19/11 4:29 PM

Doctors say a Richland High School student who collapsed likely owes his life to two teachers who provided CPR and the athletic director who showed up with a defibrillator.

Principal Tim Praino says teachers John Bittinger and Paul Staley performed CPR on Jeremy Brewer while Mike Edwards administered the shock to his heart.

The ninth-grader collapsed Friday while running around outside school with friends during lunch. He was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in critical condition and then flown to Children's hospital in Seattle.
