You Never Know When You'll Need an Athletic Trainer
Josh Koch, a former graduate assistant at LSU was seen making news at the Newark Airport on the way to the NFL combine. Josh is currently an athletic trainer for the New York Jets and his skills were put to the test when a woman on their flight needed emergency medical attention. Right before lift-off, passengers began seeking for assistance to help an elderly woman. Josh, along with another trainer and cardiologist, helped transport the woman to the jetway where they then performed CPR for about five minutes. Paramedics soon arrived, and they were able to continue their flight to the NFL combine. It is a miracle that these three men were present to help the woman and goes to show that athletic trainers are not just needed on the field but in everyday life.
