We’re working on something that could (and should) revolutionize CPR training, to make it affordable to all high and middle schools nationwide.
It should be ready in the next couple of weeks or so. Visit StudentCPR.com today!
If you’d like to know more, feel free to contact us. Sorry to be vague, but we’d like to launch with a big splash.
That said, here’s a story that reminds us all that learning CPR in school could prove to be the most valuable training in someone’s life.
A 13-year-old boy is expected to be okay, but there is no word on the condition of a 9-year-old who nearly drowned in an apartment complex swimming pool Monday evening.
Sioux Falls Police say the two boys were visiting friends at the apartments near East 10th Street and decided to go for a swim before they left. The 9-year-old boy slipped and fell into the deep end; the 13-year-old boy jumped into save him, but neither boy could swim. Fortunately, two teenagers heard the commotion, pulled the boys from the water and began performing CPR.
CPR courses in school helped save the lives of two boys at a Sioux Falls swimming pool.
The two teenagers who pulled the boys from a Sioux Falls pool Monday evening and started CPR say it’s a skill they never thought they’d need to use.

Stay tuned for more soon.
