C'mon Get Happy: There's A Doctor In the House!


A 22-year-old baseball player for LSU named Jared Poché pitched the final game of the College World Series on Tuesday.  But his dad, Jerry, ended up being a bigger story this week. Jerry was at Game 1 on Monday when an 87-year-old guy in the crowd collapsed in his seat during the sixth inning.  He'd had a heart attack, wasn't breathing, and didn't have a pulse.

Jerry was the doctor in the house! He and another dad started doing CPR, kept at it for about five minutes and actually brought the guy BACK!! The other dad who was helping is a firefighter named Jimmy Roy. His son Travis is LSU's strength and conditioning coach. 

By the time paramedics got there, the guy was stable.  And he was conscious when they wheeled him out on a stretcher.  Later in the week the man was listed in fair condition. Jerry also helped out at a game on Saturday after a little kid got hit in the head by a foul ball.  So he really got some work in this past week.

LSU ended up losing to Florida in the College World Series, but Jerry's son Jared pitched well.  And he recently got drafted by the Oakland A's.
