When Fairfax County Fire and Rescue personnel first arrived on the scene they encountered school staff performing CPR on a male student who collapsed while running on the track. Personnel shocked the young man once with the school’s Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The delivered shock resulted in a restored pulse and he started to breathe on his own. The student was transported to the hospital and has made a remarkable recovery!
