WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Several Purdue students and staff are now equipped with life-saving skills in the event of a heart attack.
Members of the American Heart Association gave lessons during their "Hands-Only CPR Mobile Tour."
According to the American Heart Association, there are more than 350 thousand cases of cardiac arrest in the United States each year.
The mobile tour aims to train 250 people at every stop.
Lessons are taught through songs that are around 120 beats per minute. This is the rate you should push on the chest during CPR.
The tour has traveled through nine states since it began in September. Its last stop will be tomorrow in Indianapolis.
