Teaching CPR before graduation

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) - There’s a bill that intends to create a generation of lifesavers by requiring South Dakota schools to teach Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation.

Executive Director of the Spearfish Ambulance Service Brian Hambek says the law would add over 11,000 C-P-R-trained students to communities.  

Hambek says you can teach hands-only CPR in twenty minutes.

The Senate Health and Human Services committee is hearing testimony on the bill today.  Senate Majority Leaders Tim Rave is the lead sponsor of the bill.

Nearly 424,000 people have sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital every year and just over 10 percent survive because they did not receive timely CPR
