Brazos Middle School staff saved man's life during heart attack, thanks to AED

HOUSTON, TEXAS (March23, 2018)

 A group of educators are being hailed as heroes after all coming together to revive a man who suffered a heart attack in their school gym. The incident happened on Feb. 1 at Brazos Middle School near Wallis. "I don't think he would've made it, possibly not even to the hospital. He certainly would not have left the hospital functioning as he is," said Carew's doctor Nils Johnson with Memorial Hermann. "When the heart stops, all of the organs in the body suffer. They don't get the blood flow that they need. On average, less than 10 percent of people like him make it to leave the hospital with a meaningful mental status, that is, a meaningful mental recovery after this."
