his pacemaker stopped working Despite efforts to save him he died near Halls office Team effort to save Smithson Valley High School student from heart attack pays off This time the results were different Jason Miller a sophomore said he felt tired and then collapsed outside a classroom according to Hall Although the student had heart problems he was not exerting any strenous activity at the time School personnel began to administer CPR immediately School nurse Sharon Wright teacher Cricket Ingraham and Sheriffs Deputy Sandy Morales and others worked as a team in the effort to revive the student They worked what seemed like an said Hall Actually it was only about eight to ten minutes before the ambulance arrived and trans ported the student to the hospital You have to administer the CPR until they paramedics take said Wright Wright also had flashbacks to the other student whom she tried to help revive the previous time After that incident many more teachers at Smith son Valley took CPR When someone has to act quickly rcmcbcring every exact procedure is not as important as doing what one can Wright said the student lost his pulse almost immediately Its important to do the compressions and methods not necessarily worry about the she said adding that teamwork is also a key is very In this case the teamwork paid off Miller was listed in fair condition at North Central
