At AEDs Today, we always enjoy sharing stories of lives saved by AEDs. Today, however, we are sharing a much more somber tale. Jordan Boyd, a 16-year-old hockey player from Nova Scotia, died after going into cardiac arrest due to an undiagnosed heart condition at a youth team training camp last August. It’s a tragedy we’ve seen many times before, but it becomes no easier to deal with. A young athlete’s life suddenly cut short always brings with it feelings of shock, sadness, and disbelief.
