Wayzata football player Ted Okerstrom saved by his coaches

The importance of knowing CPR was demonstrated by Wayzata High School football coaches last week after one of their players went into cardiac arrest during a running drill.

After 16-year-old Ted Okerstrom collapsed, coaches Matt Lombardi and Ryan Johnson responded quickly to administer CPR and used a defibrillator to bring Okerstrom back to life.
