UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Michigan House passed legislation on Wednesday that would require schools to implement a cardiac emergency response plan. Schools that have an automated external defibrillator on premises would be required to have a cardiac response training drill in place of one of the eight annual fire drills now required by law.  Jocelyn Leonard, the mother of Wes Leonard, who died after experiencing sudden cardiac arrest was at the Capitol today along with Rep Bob Genetski.  The school cardiac emergency plan must include that students in grades nine through twelve be trained in the use of an AED machine and how to perform CPR.  The legislation now moves to the house for consideration.
