Triple threat cheerleader saves coach's life

When Indianapolis Tornados head coach Jerry Senter collapsed during a game Saturday night, cheerleader Jessica Anderson had no hesitations about running onto the field. Anderson who is also a certified EMT and firefighter jumped to his rescue and gave the unresponsive coach CPR until he was rushed to the hospital.

Anderson says, “CPR is critical in situations like this. It’s definitely a big key to know CPR and… be willing to give it to people who need it the most.”

Anderson adds, that Coach Senter who had suffered a dysrythmia in his heart “is doing great… up and talking… and recovering.”
