t

he City of Las Vegas is working to save lives when every second counts. They’ve installed automated external defibrillators or AEDs at parks throughout the city that can be used on anyone who goes into cardiac arrest especially kids and adults who suffer a medical emergency while playing sports.

“I think it is a great idea because you never know what may happen… What if it was your kid? My kids?,” Anthony Anenberg a player with Libertad League Soccer told FOX5 Tuesday night.

Soccer player Omar Sanchez shared with FOX5 he had heart surgery as a child and knowing there is now an AED not far from where he is playing is comforting.

“I am very happy to see this in the park,” Sanchez explained.

In May 2012, a soccer player at the Bettye Wilson Soccer Complex suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. An off-duty emergency room doctor and nearby paramedics saved his life. His mom and other soccer moms started a group called Adam’s Heart to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest in children and worked with the city to start adding AEDs to sports complexes throughout Las Vegas.

“The AED is never going to let you use it to hurt anyone. It will sense if it needs to shock someone,” revealed Scott Philips, Assistant Chief of EMS for Las Vegas Fire and Rescue.
