A school resource deputy is being praised for helping save a student who experienced a seizure this week in Hillsborough County, Florida.
Just before 1 p.m. on Monday, School Resource Deputy (SRD) Pedro Colon received an alert that a male student at Strawberry Crest High School was experiencing a medical emergency in the cafeteria, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) said in a press release.
“Deputy Colon rushed approximately 100 feet to find the student seizing on the ground,” the release continued.
Bodycam footage showed the tense moment when the deputy turned the young man on his back, unzipped his jacket, and began performing CPR to try and revive him.
The HCSO shared the video to its Facebook page on Thursday.
Several minutes later, the student became alert and was able to sit up before emergency crews arrived and took him to a local hospital for additional treatment.
