NORWALK, Conn. -- Come out to Calf Pasture Beach on Saturday to enjoy a free opportunity to acquire an effective, easy lifesaving skill.

In only 15 minutes, people of all ages can learn to use hands-only (compression) CPR to assist a person experiencing a cardiac event.

The goal of Norwalk’s Hands for Life Day is to teach thousands of individuals how to perform hands-only CPR and to use an automatic external defibrillator.

“Hands-only CPR gives cardiac arrest victims the best chance for survival,” said Anne Bartolone, director of cardiovascular clinical operations at Norwalk Hospital, in a press release.
