Some local high school students received first hand training of a life-saving technique.
About 250 Bakersfield High School students learned CPR Thursday. The training was conducted all day for students.
Several high schoolers say they now know the importance of CPR. "It's important to know this you never know in what situation will come up a child could choke on a candy or something you never know," says Angelica Villa.
"We used the beat Staying Alive by the Bee Gees enough to get things moving in the body and it works well," says Jacob Tessandori.
Hall Ambulance was there to help with the CPR lesson. According to the American Red Cross, every 32 seconds, someone in the U.S. dies of cardiac or respiratory arrest.
