10-year-old twins save dad by using CPR they learned from The Sandlot

A group of 10-year-old twins have saved their father from drowning after using CPR they learned from their favorite movie The sandbar.

Although twins Bridon and Christian Hassig and their 11-year-old neighbor Sam Ebert had no prior knowledge of CPR, they could recall a scene from the 1993 sports comedy – when lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn (Marley Shelton) performs CPR on squints (Chauncey Leopardi). ) – to rescue her father, Brad Hassig, who passed out at the five-foot end of their pool.

In conversation with Hoda Kotb on today Show, the twins joined their father and their neighbor to talk about the experience.

“It was a typical afternoon – we had music on the speakers and I was doing underwater breathing exercises to relax,” Brad explained. “I wasn’t rushing or trying to be a Navy Seal.”

Shortly thereafter, Brad lost consciousness. “Christian said I was on my side and I was shaking and my head was turning blue,” Brad said.

“He yelled for Bridon and Sam to jump in and they both grabbed my shoulder and pulled me towards the stairs.”

Christian then ran to get help and stopped a driver on the street, who called 911. Meanwhile, Bridon began using the CPR methods he had seen in his favorite films The sandbar and Hook.

When first responders arrived, Brad was rushed to a nearby hospital and taken to the cardiac intensive care unit, where after 24 hours his vital signs stabilized and he was diagnosed with hypoxia.

Hypoxia is a condition that occurs when there is insufficient oxygen in the bloodstream caused by excess fluid in the lungs.

“I’m so proud of my boys,” Brad said. “I tell them, ‘Remember you are heroes,’ and I will forever be grateful to them. And Sam is such a kind and gentle kid. It’s a bond now.”
