YSU students in the Master of Athletic Training and Physical Therapy programs are participating in a simulated helicopter rescue.

The helicopter rescue scenario will be led by Captain Connor O'Halloran of the Western Reserve Joint Fire District and will teach students how to load injured patients into a helicopter.

The helicopter rescue is taking place at 10:30 a.m. Friday at the lower practice field at Poland Seminary High School.

YSU students will also learn how to deal with emergency medical situations.
