Heart Attack Survivor Testifies for Bill to Require CPR Training in Oregon High Schools
From: The Oregonian
Raoul "Rook" Meekcoms rarely talked about his brush with death.
He didn't tell people he had collapsed in cardiac arrest and that his wife, Sandra Sharp-Meekcoms, frantically began hands-only CPR until emergency responders and physicians finally restored his heartbeat after more than a half hour. But Meekcoms recently told an Oregon Senate committee that cardio-pulmonary resuscitation saved his life.
