CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in adults in the U.S.

First responders say the more people who are trained in CPR, the better chances victims have at survival.

But there’s technology that’s helping save lives.

The Pulsepoint app sends alerts about people in cardiac arrest, allowing folks trained in CPR to respond to emergencies.

First responders say it’s a huge help because those people might be closer than first responders.
