Teens use CPR to save classmate having seizure at Butler bus stop

Posted: Updated:

A group of students from the Morris County School of Technology saved a classmate having a seizure Wednesday morning at a Butler bus stop.

Brooke Gurnari, 17, a junior at the school’s Health Care Sciences Academy, saw the boy's face turn blue and began chest compressions for 10 minutes before emergency responders arrived, according to News12.

Health Care Sciences Academy students are certified in Red Cross, CPR, AED and First Aid during their freshman year.

Gurnari, a Bloomingdale resident, coordinated the rescue effort as Brandon Russo, a junior auto body student from Butler, held down their classmate who was convulsing and Peter Brower, a senior welding student from Butler, performed rescue breaths, according to the Daily Record.

The group's rescue effort worked as the boy began breathing again and quickly regained consciousness, the Daily Record reported.
