Because first responders were there on time, they were able to do a successful round of CPR on Michael. CPR helps keep blood flow through the brain. As mentioned in the article, Michael was seen smiling at his dad after waking up from an induced coma. Michael did not suffer brain damage from his cardiac arrest due to the AED used on him. Once Michael was admitted to the hospital, the doctors diagnosed him with a rare brain tumor, CARDIAC FIBROMA, that can stop the blood flow through his heart. Michael's family has started a GoFundMe to get the surgery Michael needs. CPR can save anyone's life if done properly and right away.
