High School Students Save Man's Life

Posted: Updated:

It was a normal Friday morning day for students from Huntingtown High School in Calvert County as they were on the school bus to go to school. But as they looked out the windows of their school bus, they saw a man lying face down on the ground in the snow holding his dog on a leash.

Four of the students jumped off the bus and rushed to his aid. Two of them are training as volunteer firefighters and administered CPR.

Tyler Latvala and Lawrence Moats said they just did what they learned to do in class. Two other students on the bus, Nigeria Jones and Dion Jones, who are cousins, also helped out.

They went through the man's pockets looking for identification and eventually found a phone number on his dog's tag to call relatives and an ambulance.

Paramedics on an arriving ambulance took over and rushed the man to the hospital.
