Nunya, who graduated from St. Francis High last spring after competing on the school's football and track and field programs, sprung into action.

When Assistant City Atty. Dennis Schuck collapsed because of a heart attack, he was fortunate others in City Hall knew CPR and were able to help. Considering it had been six years since Glendale had held a clinic for its general staff, it was lucky that attorneys and city managers do more than push papers. Schuck is around today thanks -- in no small part -- to their help. The city has decided not to rely on luck in the future and is planning courses for all 1,700 employees.

Gretchen Hoffman Chip Cabana doesn't consider himself an overly religious man, but he has no explanation other than God's intervention for how he saved a neighbor's son who almost drowned. Cabana's last CPR class was 27 years ago, but when he heard Klara Arakelian's screams and saw her toddler floating in the pool July 6, he jumped into action. He hopped out of the RV he was tinkering around in -- the window of which looks over the Arakelians' pool -- and ran around the fence.

When an activity results in broken bones, it is usually a sign to desist. So Hoover High School senior Sasoon Amerian had his work out cut out for him Thursday as he set about training his schoolmates on how to administer hands-only CPR. “The ribs probably are going to break,” said Sasoon, 18, a member of the Hoover High School Public Safety Academy. “It is alright if they break, just continue, even though it is going to be a little scary.” The lesson, which was conducted using a dummy, was one of dozens taking place in classrooms throughout the campus as part of Sidewalk CPR, a nationwide event designed to teach members of the public how to assist someone who has stopped breathing.

He has served as captain in the past and is currently the duty officer and chairman of the disaster team. Dugger has been especially integral to the team during the Station fire. Dugger’s involvement with the Red Cross stemmed from his desire to get a particular Boy Scout leader badge that required CPR and first aid certification, he said.

Lee, a Pasadena resident, was one of 150 people during a morning session in which he and others conducted the adult cardiopulmonary resuscitation technique as part of the American Red Cross Glendale and Crescenta Valley Chapter’s annual Super CPR Saturday.
