When someone collapses with a heart attack, the first few minutes are so so critical. (It’s pretty clear that Tim Russert’s death prompted Couric’s desire to educate the public on this.) Check out the video our below — be patient with the ad that runs first — and you will be prepared to save the day should you encounter this emergency:
