A soccer ball to the chest stopped the heart of a California teen, whose mom ran to his aid, performed CPR, and saved his life.
While playing in his final JV soccer game of the season, Jose Agredano was hit by a ball, collapsed, and stopped breathing. His parents were in the Watsonville, California stands watching and ran to help their 16-year-old son. Jose’s mom, Dr. Gina Agredano, immediately started doing CPR and kept at it for three minutes until she got a defibrillator to shock the teen’s heart and save his life.
The ball has hit Jose on the left side of his chest, stopping his heart in something called an impact-induced cardiac arrest. One of the docs who treated him at the hospital later says these things can happen when something hits the left side of someone’s chest at the right time in the electrical cardiac cycle, between heartbeats.
"Had it not been for the CPR and defibrillator,” the doctor explains, “Jose would’ve died.” Now the teen is expected to make a full recovery and is happy to be alive, thanks to his mom.
