A St. Louis teen was in the dressing room of her local Walmart Wednesday when she heard a call for emergency services go out over an employee’s radio.

It turns out Abby had recently learned all about it in her school’s health class, thanks to a year-old initiative that brings EMTs to teach the skill to every high school student in the Hillsboro district.
