Columbia River High School Security Officer Joe Reed and Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy Albin Boyse jumped straight into action when they heard over their radios that a student had collapsed in the gymnasium during football practice. Boyse checked the boy for a pulse and realized he didn’t have one. Reed began performing CPR while Boyse directed a person standing by to retrieve a defibrillator. The student’s heart started and stopped beating several times as Reed worked to resuscitate him. The student was transported to the hospital and thanks to Reed and Boyse’s quick action, he made a full recovery.
