Rep. Murphy learns CPR, addresses Class about his personal life-changing experiences

Rep. Murphy this week took part in a potentially-lifesaving class on how to administer CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver.

The class was for members and staff of the General Assembly. Theresa Thompson and her staff at Prairie Heart Institute did an outstanding job ensuring we all learned the proper techniques. Rep. Murphy also addressed the class and tell them how a friend was saved when she went into cardiac arrest and was immediately given CPR until help arrived, and how he, himself, was saved recently when Senator Michael Hastings preformed the Heimlich Maneuver when he began choking at an event.

“I encourage everyone to get this training so you can be of assistance when needed. Thanks again to everyone involved in putting on this important training class,” Rep. Murphy said.
