ROHNERT PARK (KRON) — A 9-year old student who collapsed at his elementary school this morning has been resuscitated, according to the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety.

Fire units responded to the scene around 10:23 this morning to Evergreen Elementary School, where the young boy stopped breathing on the playground.  When police arrived, a teacher had already begun to administer CPR to the child.
