Indiana lawmakers want to save lives by increasing CPR Training.
State Representative Ron Bacon of Chandler authored the new law that requires 9-1-1- operators to be trained on how to coach callers through hands-only CPR.
According to the American Heart Association, nearly 900 Americans die a day because of cardiac arrest.
But only about 45-percent survive because a bystander knew CPR.
Bacon says CPR can double or triple a person’s chance of surviving a heart attack.
