The students were jogging when the incident happened. It was shortly after they had begun when the student fell to the ground. Fellow students called out for the teacher, Bassel Faltas, who ran about 100 yards to the scene. He also called 911 from his cell phone on the way. By the time he reached the boy, he was still breathing, but later stopped. The teacher began CPR before the paramedics arrived.
The student was taken to Dominican Hospital, and flown from there to Sanford University Medical Center, where he remains hospitalized.
The school has offered counseling to the students to discuss any of their concerns.
Things like this really reinforce the importance of students learning CPR in high school.
