Every year there are almost 424,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the United States, and of this figure an estimated 10,200 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen to children. Sadly, only 10% of victims who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital setting survive, largely in part because many victims do not receive timely CPR or AED application.

On August 19th, 2011 Marisol Ferrante was happily at work when she suddenly began experiencing painful headaches. Thinking it was a normal stress-related headache; she took some pain killers and tried to resume working. However, even hours later, an intense pain shot up the back of her neck and wouldn't go away.
