A Florissant middle school student is alive today thanks to the quick actions of school officials and the School Resource Officer.

According to Florissant police, Officer Kim Berry was at her post at Cross Keys Middle School on March 31, when she was asked to respond to the school gymnasium for a report of a student having seizures.

When Officer Berry arrived, she discovered that a 14 year old male student was not breathing and did not have a pulse.

Officer Berry and physical education teacher Scott McMurry immediately began CPR while the principal and school nurse arrived from the school office with the Automated External Defibrillator or AED.

One shock was delivered and CPR was continued until the student began to breathe on his own.  

Paramedics from the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District arrived quickly and the victim was then transported to an area hospital where he is recuperating and is expected to make a full recovery.  

The AED used in this incident was purchased by the Ferguson-Florissant School District, which has them in every district building.

A 13 year old Cross Keys Middle School student is in juvenile custody after bringing a gun to school Thursday.

Ferguson-Florissant District officials say the student had told his teacher that he'd brought something to school that he shouldn't have. The teacher contacted school administrators who called Florissant police. They took the student into custody.

The gun, a .38-caliper pistol, was unloaded, but the student did have one bullet in his possession.

The case is being turned over to the St. Louis County Family Court. Besides possible weapons charges, the student faces long-term suspension or possibly expulsion.
