In Touch w/Jeff Smith - Lindsay's Law

By  | 

TOLEDO (13abc Action News) - There is a lot of talk this week about brain injuries and the links to football.

It's timely.

Local high school teams started practice this week.

But this year, high school coaches and parents have something else to be aware of: a new state law.

It's called Lindsay's Law, and it's a new sudden cardiac arrest law, better known as S.C.A.

S.C.A. is when the heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly.

People with S.C.A. will die if not treated immediately.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) wants all youth athletes, their parents or guardians and coaches to review the new information and be ready if there are signs and symptoms.
