LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - More than 100 people gathered at Faith Community Center in Lafayette on Saturday, to learn life-saving skills at the 7th Annual CPR Saturday.
The event is hosted by the American Red Cross, and teaches proper procedures for performing CPR, as well as how to use a defibrillator.
Instructors said the two hour course could be the difference in saving a life.
"It's amazing to see 103 people are committed to learning how to save a life," said Development Director Jennifer Edwards. "It's 103 more people that are trained in our community. Several years ago we had a boy scout that went through the training and he identified the signs of a heart attack in his grandmother and was able to save her life."
According to the American Red Cross, proper CPR procedures are two breaths for every 30 compressions.
