Defibrillators donated to baseball league



The Cincinnati Enquirer

ALEXANDRIA - Coaches with the Campbell County Knothole Baseball League stayed late Tuesday at Bishop Brossart High School in Alexandria to learn how to use a defibrillator.

The class was in connection with the first round of donations made by the Justin Allan Saccone Memorial Fund's board of automated external defibrillators.

Thirteen defibrillators were donated at the school Tuesday.

Other recipients included Brossart High School and the Campbell County Police Department.

Justin Saccone died from cardiac arrest Sept. 21 while playing baseball in Pendery Park.

One of the defibrillators will be available for use by the baseball league at the park.

Defibrillators are an emergency device used to revive victims of cardiac arrest and heart emergencies.
