Every year thousands of kids and teens die after their heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating from sudden cardiac arrest, and it’s been mostly seen in student athletes.

Now, a heart screening is coming to Yuma for teens ages 12-19

The screening was idea by local Cardiologist Joseph Cardenas’ son after attending one in San Diego.

The local effort is possible by the help of YRMC and the Save A Life Foundation.

Cibola High School will be hosting the free event from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m tomorrow, Saturday, October 3rd.
