Parents unite to combat sudden cardiac arrest among young athletes

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.
