The medic team made the real power play at a high school football game Friday night. A man went into cardiac arrest at the Carter-Gibbs game. Quick work by first responders was able to save him.

CPR was started immediately. The school keeps an AED difbrillator at the stadium, and it was used once.

The ALS medic team that was on hand got the man to a stable condition and transported him to a local hospital. There has been no update on his condition.

Jeff Bagwell with Rural Metro Fire said this is "just another reason why AED's and training are a must for high school stadiums and having a fire crew and an ambulance on scene should always be required."
