Here is a refreshing bit of good news: two employees of the Santa Monica Spectrum Athletic club's quick action and an AED saved the life of a participant who was having a heart attack during a class last week. Although they don't identify Tracy Smith as the Instructor in the class, based on her interview in this video I'm guessing that she was. Tracy, along with another employee Amaud Mitchell quickly performed CPR and then administered the AED, saving the man's life. Hats off to both of you:)
Do you have an AED at your club? Have you been trained to use it?
