SSTRIDE student saves baby's life after learning CPR in high school

Crestview High School student Savion Harris was at work at a Thai restaurant when the mother of the family-owned business came running down the stairs with her son Max in her arms, frantically yelling for someone to help.

According to WEAR, the baby had turned blue and was not breathing.

Harris, an 11th grader at Crestview, immediately jumped into action and began chest compressions on the infant. Harris received his CPR certification as part of Crestview High School's Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program. The program currently has a partnership between its medical classes and the FSU College of Medicine's SSTRIDE program (Science Students Together Reaching Instructional Diversity & Excellence).
