This young man's life was meant to be saved...bravo to his trainer Mr. Williams. I wonder how many of us would know truly what to do. What a positive and remarkable young man and I hope his life continues to be one of gratitude and helping others. From what I read about him I don't think that will be an issue...his parents must be very proud of the good human being he is.

Hey Big T. This is an awesome article. Having watched Danny Berger play ball at USU I have been interested to hear about his plans for the future. Danny makes me proud to be an Aggie.

It is important to have an AED at athltic sites. Equally important is that the coach/trainers/parents are trained and certified in using the device. It does no good to put an AED in place and walk away. While it may make people feel good to see one mounted on the wall (and it does contain instructions for use) precious time is wasted if the user has to read and follow those instructions.

Yearly training, certification and regular review of the skills makes an AED the lifesaving device it is intended to be. Just like it was at Utah state where the trainer, Mr. Williams, did not have to read insructions but instead knew exactly how to set up and use the AED without delay.

Thanks for sharing this article. Danny's perspective on life and service are refreshing. Best wishes to him and all who have been involved - Williams, his family, his ecclesiastical leaders, his girlfriend, USU, coaches, etc etc

Great article on something that a lot of people care about. God works in mysterious ways and when we have eyes to see and ears to hear we can see the important truths he is trying to teach all around us. Thanks for helping is see in this article.

I always find it interest when somebody with a near death experience has a renewed "faith" in God. I dare say almost all people have a renewed "fear" of God after a near death experience. There are not many of us that can answer the question "are you ready" when faced with earthy demise.

I am so happy for Danny . An almost identical story happened to my son 2 years ago, he was 19 and a college swimmer. If there is any chance danny would be interested in communicating with my son about his incident it could maybe be helpful for them both...being so young and having someone go through what they have could possibly benefit them. Thanks for sharing and god bless.
