Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

A 12-year-old boy from Wellington, Fla. saved a drowning man with help from CPR that he learned from watching the hit Netflix series ‘Stranger Things.’ WFLA says the show taught him what he needed to know.

Jason Piquette is a behavioral therapist who works with Austen MacMillan. The pair spend their time doing a lot of swimming. After an underwater breath-holding exercise went wrong, MacMillan sprung into action and saved Piquette’s life.

Piquette said “We both held our breath like for a minute, a minute and a half. And I said, ‘OK, I am going to do it one more time and like try to get to two and a half minutes.’ And I said to him, ‘Just tap on me when I’m about a minute 40 [seconds].’”

“My lungs started to fill up with water, and I went from the shallow end at the bottom of the pool because I let all of the air out of my lungs,” he said. “I went to the bottom of the pool and sank. And then I started to raise up a little bit, and I started to drift to the deep end.”

Jason Piquette said of being saved by young Austen MacMillan, “Every doctor, everyone, has said I should be dead. I am so grateful to be alive, and so grateful that Austen stepped up and saved me.” Are you trained in CPR and other life-saving techniques?
