Would you know what to do if someone went into Cardiac Arrest? On Tuesday, a group of AITE students learned just that. In honor of February being National Heart Health Month, the high school teamed up with Stamford Hospital to teach about 200 hundred students how to perform hands-on CPR.

AITE student Zarama Rodriguez says the class showed her the importance of knowing the right way to do things in a serious situation. Lataya Berry, a biology teacher at the school, says this is one of many events AITE has hosted with Stamford Hospital as part of Project Lead the Way.

Although Tuesday’s session was just an awareness class, Berry says students who are interested in getting CPR certified can sign up to do so as an after school activity.

Berry says proceeds from the event’s raffle drawing will go to the American Heart Association and educational field trips for students.
