LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – When every second matters, the City of Las Vegas is striving to save lives.
AEDs, or automated external defibrillators, have been put in parks all throughout the city and may be used on anybody who suffers a cardiac arrest, particularly children and adults who have a medical emergency while participating in sports.
“I think it is a great idea because you never know what may happen… What if it was your kid? My kids? ,” Anthony Anenberg a player with Libertad League Soccer told Tuesday night.
Omar Sanchez, a soccer player, revealed that he underwent heart surgery as a youngster and that it gives him comfort to know that there is now an AED nearby where he is playing.
