As TODAY’s “Winning at All Costs” series focusing some of the risks and dangers facing young athletes, Jenna Bush Hager speaks to One Beat CPR + AED partner, Parent Heart Watch, a group of parents who are trying to save kids’ lives in memory of the children they lost to sudden cardiac arrest during sports activities. It “can happen to any child,” one parent warns – but the chance of surviving it rises dramatically if an automated external defibrillator is nearby and accessible.

Granbury, Texas, police officer, Chase Miller, was recently recognized by city officials for using CPR to save a 3-year-old boy.
On Oct. 12, Officer Miller responded to a 911 call requesting help at a Kentucky Fried Chicken for a little boy who was not breathing and unresponsive. Dash-cam footage from Miller’s vehicle showed him pulling into the restaurant’s parking lot minutes later.
The department said that after Miller got out of his vehicle, he encountered a group of people, including a crying woman carrying an unresponsive little boy in her arms.
The woman was identified as Bethany Hoover, 21, of Granbury, and the little boy as Hoover’s 3-year-old son, Brayden Geis. Brayden’s father, John Geis, 21, of Granbury, could also be seen in the video.
Hoover told ABC News today that Brayden had suffered a febrile seizure due to a cold he’d come down with.
A general manager at the Kentucky Fried Chicken, Hoover said she’d called her husband in to work as a cook that evening. She told him to bring along Brayden until her mother could come pick him up.
Hoover said at first, Brayden was playing but then started crying. She said she give him ibuprofen, but when she noticed how hot he was, she took him outside. The boy’s head was resting on his shoulder, Hoover said, and then she felt his arm go limp.
“[I] leaned him forward and he was having a seizure,” she said. “John called 911.”
Police said Miller began CPR and then had the boy’s dad continue chest compressions as he got a breathing mask. Police said that after two minutes, Miller had revived the child. Brayden was later treated by the Granbury Volunteer Fire Department and then taken to Lake Granbury Medical Center.
Hoover told ABC News that by the next day, Brayden was acting like nothing had happened though the fever still lingered.
At a City Council meeting Tuesday night, Miller was awarded the Life Saving Award for saving Brayden’s life. Miller also got to meet Brayden and his parents. The officer gave Brayden several gifts, including a toy police dog named Chase from the children’s show “Paw Patrol.”
“Officer Miller’s exceptional performance reflect great credit upon himself, the Granbury Police Department and the city of Granbury,” police said.
Hoover said that the three had visited Miller again at the police department today. She said that she and her husband had told Miller that they’d give him their world for saving Brayden.
“Our son is the world to us,” she said today. “That’s our world. That’s our life.”
