High School Senior Saves Heart Attack Victim

Middle  Island, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) A Long Island teenager is being hailed a hero after she jumped into action to save a man’s life at a school concert. Kayla Parmely, 18, a senior at Longwood High School in Middle Island, was in the front row of the school’s auditorium when she saw an elderly man having a heart attack. Parmely used her recent training as an EMT at the Middle Island Fire Department’s explorer program and grabbed the school’s defibrillator.

“I shocked him and as soon as I shocked him his pulse started coming back, continued CPR and he started breathing on his own,” Parmely told CBS 2.

The man is expected to survive, CBS 2 reported. Parmely said she will continue her EMT training in college next year while studying psychology.
