WASHINGTON, May 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Water Safety Month and National CPR & AED Awareness Week (
According to the American Heart Association, almost 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR Party™ founder Laura Metro says, "If someone nearby doesn't perform CPR you will die. It's that simple."
CPR Party™ is doing this not only to raise CPR awareness but to actually teach CPR to thousands simultaneously. After participating the The World's Largest Swimming Lesson™, Metro was inspired to create a similar event for CPR. "We will be working over this next year to organize current partners and secure sponsorships with organizations large and small to host this life-saving party", Laura says.
According to the CDC, for each drowning victim in the USA, five children go to the hospital for a non-fatal drowning event. The CDC notes that this is underestimated as there is no systematic reporting mechanism for non-fatal drowning. Early rescue of drowning victims (within five minutes of submersion) and immediate CPR are the best chance of a complete recovery.
