The dramatic incident unfolded during a routine student-teacher basketball game when Kattola suddenly felt unwell before collapsing in the gym.


“Medically, I was gone,” Kattola revealed to Fox 2 Detroit, reflecting on the terrifying moment.


Isreal DuBose and Correy Coleman, both juniors at Oak Park High, sprang into action without hesitation. Drawing on the CPR and first aid skills they had learned just months earlier in a health sciences class, the duo began administering life-saving measures.


“We thought we might use it at some point in our lives, but not that soon,” Coleman said.


“We’re sitting in the bleachers…I just knew I had to do something,” DuBose said. “I began compressions and around two and a half rounds of compressions, the AED was brought and Correy placed the AED pads.”
