Red Cross trainer saved by students. Would you know what to do?

Luckily for Red Cross trainer Inga Sloan her students knew what to do when she experienced a heart attack at age 39.

Inga had just started teaching her first aid class when she suddenly collapsed. With no signs, symptoms, or warning, Inga dropped to the floor and went into full cardiac arrest. She was showing no signs of life. Her trainees were quick to react. They immediately started CPR, ran to fetch the AED from the firetruck parked outside, and began working through the correct life-saving procedures as taught by Inga and the Red Cross. The training crew applied two AED shocks and administered CPR until  paramedics arrived with an ambulance to transport her to a local hospital.
