Nici watched in horror as her 5-year-old son fell lifelessly to the floor in front of her. After performing CPR on William, he was diagnosed with genetically-caused cardiac arrest.
Paramedics arrived at the scene and rushed William to Sydney Children’s Hospital. The paramedics formed an army of heroes around the little boy, and ended up saving his life. After he was stabilized, doctors placed him in an induced coma for five days. Two weeks later, a small defibrillator was inserted under his rib cage, which keeps his heart regulated.
In the touching video below, the six heroic paramedics are reunited with William and his family in his hospital room, and even they were stunned that the boy miraculously survived such a traumatic cardiac arrest without any brain damage whatsoever.
Cardiac arrest in children can be much more serious in children than in adults, which is why the paramedics say all parents should know how to perform CPR on their children. Nici’s quick thinking and preparedness were key factors in William’s survival; had she not known how to perform the technique, William’s outcome could have taken a much more tragic turn.
