FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Every year, 250-people die in Allen County from sudden cardiac arrest, people whose lives may have been saved if someone nearby had known CPR.
Wednesday morning at the Fort Wayne Community Center, people took advantage of free, hands-only CPR training.
The Don't Miss a Beat course takes only about 45-minutes and was part of The Three Rivers Festival.
Participants use mannequins or special kits to learn the hands-only CPR, which eliminates the mouth to mouth breathing that was taught in school years ago.
