Advanced Medical Transport (AMT) recently recognized a Bradley University student and Bradley Police Officer with Community Resuscitation Awards for their first aid efforts to help a Bradley student who recently collapsed on campus due to cardiac arrest.
 
Bradley senior Brianna Seeberger responded to shouts for someone to call 9-1-1 in Olin Hall by jumping into action. Finding another student under a table, she pulled him into a clear space and began compressions and rescue breaths.

Seeberger was relieved by Bradley Police Officer Sean Savage, who immediately began CPR upon arriving on the scene and continued providing it until paramedics arrived.
 
The student was fully resuscitated by paramedics with the use of an AED. He is currently continuing his recovery.
 
Seeberger and Savage received their awards, presented by AMT Community Resource Manager Josh Bradshaw, in a small ceremony at the Bradley University Police Department.
 
Bradley University has nearly 30 AEDs located throughout its campus, several of which were recently donated by AMT.
