Student Saves CPR Instructor After Heart Attack In Class

50th Anniversary Of CPR Marked In San Francisco

On the first night of his CPR training class, instructor David Knowles started feeling awful. He realized he might be having a heart attack, so first he let his new students know that he wasn’t doing a demonstration, this was the real thing.

Thankfully, one of the students in the class was former nurse Karol Chew, who was taking the course as a refresher. She was able to perform CPR on her CPR instructor when he stopped breathing. And without her, Knowles doesn’t know if he would have survived.

The 77-year-old man from Exeter, England, woke up two and a half weeks later, after being in a medically induced coma because of the severe heart damage. Now he’s in good health and feels much better. And the student who saved him knows she’s mastered her CPR technique!
