King County school resource officer saved student’s life

rankinKENT — King County medics are honoring a school resource officer for saving a student’s life.

Officer Scott Rankin saw 16-year-old Xavier Hunter going into cardiac arrest in the hallway between classes Nov. 6 at Kent-Meridian High School. He grabbed his department-issued automated external defibrillator. He sent a charge through Hunter’s system and then performed CPR, allowing firefighters and medics to get there in time to save Hunter’s life.

His mom says that with Rankin’s aid, Hunter would have died.

    Nothing was said about those other 2 kids. Seemed like they did not care. No sense of what was going on.

    The two girls thought he was joking, and in actuality, once they realized that he wasn't, acted quickly starting the ball rolling to getting first responders on scene. Xavier is a character and will sell out on a joke, so it wasn't shocking to me that the two ladies thought he was kidding.

    This is one of the most daring and brave deeds by an officer. I am so impressed watching this clip where an officer risk his own life to save some other’s life. This can be one of the best examples for others to follow and care for the society. Keep posting more.
