Lightning strike makes 2 students poster boys for CPR kiosks
Airline travelers waiting for flights can now spend a few minutes teaching themselves a life-saving skill _ hands-only CPR.
Unusual kiosks that feature videos, rubber torsos and a disco soundtrack are being introduced at five U.S. airports: Indianapolis, Chicago, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Baltimore-Washington.
Experts say more than 20 percent of heart attacks occur in public places. The chances of survival are much higher if a bystander can administer CPR before medics arrive.
The kiosk rollout by the American Heart Association and Anthem Foundation follows the successful test of one at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport.
More than 25,000 people have trained on that kiosk since 2013. That includes a senior at the University of Dayton who saved another student just two days after learning CPR.
