6 Days After Learning CPR, Principal Rescues Student

Principal Rene Rovirosa was surveying his school’s wrestling practice when 15-year old student Devon Octave went into cardiac arrest. Having learned CPR a mere six days earlier, Rovirosa knew exactly what to do and began compressions on Octave until paramedics arrived. Octave was taken to the hospital and an defibrillator was implanted in his chest. He also learned that he suffers from a┬ácongenital heart condition, which caused the cardiac arrest.

But Devon is most thankful for his principal, and the two are now connected together for life. Rovirosa’s quick thinking saved the life of one of his students, something he will likely never forget.

My husband and I hired Precious Hearts to come teach us CPR in our home and we had a WONDERFUL experience! Grace is a fantastic teacher and we learned so much. She had all the proper equipment for us to get lots of practice, she gave lots of real-world examples, and overall she made the process really fun and positive. Our nanny came for the 2nd half of the class and she reviewed the CPR and choking rescue procedures with her as well. I sleep better at night knowing that we received great training and I would HIGHLY recommend Precious Hearts for anyone considering CPR training. Thank you Precious Hearts Team!
