TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- The North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo taught a group of girl scouts how to perform CPR Saturday.

The girls learned what to do if someone has passed out and how to properly administer CPR.

This is the second CPR class the hospital has given.

They plan to have one every six months.

The hospital trauma program manager said there were four cases of drowning in 2012.
She said the hospital has teamed up with Tupelo Parks and Recreation to make sure there are more CPR certified people around in the event of an accident.

"Just so they know, if they do actually find someone down, that they could actually do something to save their life," NMMC Trauma Program Manager Kim Wright said. "To start the CPR. To get their heart going."

Wright also said to remember to call 911 first when someone is unconscious before performing CPR.
