High School Baseball Player Comes to the Rescue After Umpire Collapses

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a high school baseball player springs into action to save an umpire. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Alex Norwood, 16, said the incident happened between the second and third innings: The umpire just collapsed.

Norwood said his instincts kicked in and he ran over to help the umpire, who was suffering from some sort of medical emergency.

“They had gotten to call 911 and they said, ‘Does anyone know CPR?’ I got certified a little while ago, I checked for a pulse and started doing compressions,” Norwood said.
