Associated Press Release

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Eighteen students enrolled in an emergency medical technician class at Pensacola State College sprang into action when a woman was involved in a crash near the campus.

The Escambia County Department of Public Safety recently sent the students letters commending them for saving a fellow student's life on July 17.

The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/1d77HMY ) reports dental hygiene student Amy Stone was involved in a two-car crash that left her critically injured. The emergency medical technician students were getting ready to start class when they heard about the crash.

Officials say they assessed Stone and three other victims. Stone was partially ejected from her vehicle and wasn't breathing. The students opened her airway and put her in a neck brace.

Stone thanked the students at their Aug. 7 graduation ceremony.
