YMCA at Camp Arroyo Staff Recently Saved a Camper

Check out the KTVU news covering an Alameda County EMS banquet that recognized citizen responders, including our fantastic YMCA at Camp Arroyo staff who saved a then 9 year old Carlo Cooney last spring.

We are forever grateful and proud of the quick action taken by YMCA at Camp Arroyo staff who took immediate steps, critical to saving his life and worked with the area's First Responders to ensure his healthy recovery. YMCA staff followed their training to the letter, performed CPR and used the AED to bring Carlo back.

It is always fantastic to see Carlo looking happy & healthy---an unbelievable situation with the best possible outcome!
