Why not invest that time and take a short course. That’s what Mike Portner did. He and his partner took the opportunity to attend a course in October this year. By the time December came, the course was needed. Mike had the skills and their Christmas will be all the better for it.
It doesn’t take long
After being put down for the night, their son had spit up. He was gasping for air and was turning purplish and blueish. Portner performed CPR while baby’s mother called 9-1-1.
“It’s the scariest thing I’ve experienced,” she said.
But it worked. Emergency workers came within three to four minutes, and Portner had already revived their son. They were rushed to St. Cloud Hospital. Baby Harrison was diagnosed with pneumonia. He’s now back at home recovering and the couple credit their class training with saving his life,
“I don’t know where we’d be at,” Portner said. “I put a lot back on that training.”
Make good use of your evenings
It really doesn’t take long, and it really does save lives.
