FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) FM Ambulance had a "Save A Life Saturday" at West Acres Mall.

The slogan for the day was "take four minutes today to save a life tomorrow."

FM Ambulance was teaching members of our community how to properly do hands only CPR proving that both the young and old can learn how to do it.

"We're worrying about the compressions. You don't have to worry about breathing for the patient anymore. We'll take care of that when we get here or the fire department gets there," says FM Ambulance's Kathy Lonski.

FM Ambulance says that every 90-seconds someone dies of sudden cardiac arrest.

Only 33% of cardiac arrest victims in the F-M area receive immediate lifesaving CPR, and immediate CPR can double or even triple a victim's chance of survival.
