SALT LAKE CITY — If not for his coaches' quick action, 17-year-old Ross Palmer would be dead.
The American Falls, Idaho, football player collapsed Tuesday evening while running wind sprints. Two of his coaches started cardiopulmonary resuscitation while another ran into his high school to grab the school's new AED, a portable heart defibrillator.
