12,000 Montanans Learn CPR

BOZEMAN -

A local organization celebrates two years of saving lives by teaching CPR.

In the last two years, 12,000 Montanans learned hands-on CPR thanks to the Gallatin Heart Rescue.

In one year, the rate of surviving after a heart attack in Gallatin County has jumped from 6% to 17%.

Richard Hecox had a heart attack almost a year ago while he was driving. He said he crashed and a lady who went through the class saved his life.

"I'm so thankful that someone was willing to get and do what they could. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be here," said Hecox.

The training has been adopted through the U.S. Department of Health and Human services as a statewide program.
