CPR in schools bill passes in Vt House

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The Vermont House passed a bill Tuesday inspired by an eighth-grader from Williston.

Last year, Tommy Watson saw an elderly man collapse and die from a heart attack. Now he wants every high schooler in the state to know CPR.

Watson got one of his state senators to draft the bill. It's passed the House. Now the "CPR In Schools" bill is on its way to the Senate.
