VIDEO: A man is recovering after collapsing from a cardiac arrest Tuesday at a softball game. It happened at Lincoln County High School. Witnesses say it was a parent who collapsed just before the game started. They say he was resuscitated by an AED. School officials say that AED was bought after an 8-year-old boy in the county died last year while playing soccer. WSAZ has covered several stories related to Caleb Ray’s death, including his family raising money to buy AEDs for local fields. WSAZ investigation in August 2018 revealed that the life saving devices are not required on sports fields in West Virginia.
