Sonoma County sports leagues buy defibrillators after boy collapses

ROHNERT PARK, Calif.

On April 13, paramedics in the stands watching the game jumped in and used CPR to keep Matthew Henry alive until an ambulance crew arrived.

They used a defibrillator to shock the boy's heart back into a normal rythym. Henry is now recovering from the incident.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports Saturday: Several little leagues are already buying the machines at a cost of more than $1,600 each.
