Prescott boy's life saved thanks to CPR


PRESCOTT --  Mandy Matzek said she can’t wait for her local CPR classes to start.

She’s got good reason on wanting to learn the life-saving device as she saw first-hand how it saved her son’s life.

On June 30, Matzek and her family were over at friend Troy Billeter’s house on Helen St. in Prescott. Seven-year-old Bennett Matzek was one of eight kids swimming in an in-ground pool when, all of a sudden, it was noticed he was floating in the pool and not moving.
