Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with some life-saving news. The Los Angeles Fire Department now has a CPR smartphone app. If you're trained in CPR, you download this app and you'll be notified if a person near you needs help. And maybe not just a person - in Salem, Oregon a woman discovered her pet lizard in distress. Her bearded dragon was not moving. So she started chest compressions, and blew air in its mouth, performing CPR on the lizard until it revived. Its MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
