A high school football star from Pearland today talked about how team trainers and a coach brought him back to life with a defibrillator a few weeks ago. On March 3, Dawson High School fullback Jonathan Moore's heart stopped and he collapsed during spring drills. A Dawson high trainer started CPR while a coach and another trainer grabbed the school's automatic external defibrillator and used it on Moore to restart his heart.

Jonathan said, "Collapsed, passed out, actually died and Shadack and other trainers brought me back."

"l'm very grateful for Pearland ISD, the trainers and all the doctors here," said Jonathan's mother Vanessa Williams.

Cardiologists at Children's Memorial Hermann implanted an internal defibrillator to regulate Jonathan's heartbeat.
