About 300 Nottingham High School Students in Syracuse joined Wednesday with other students nationwide to walk-out of their classrooms and join together to demand for tighter gun control policies.  They also let students and parents in Parkland, Florida know they’re thinking of them by taking a roll-call of sorts by reading their names, ages, and a brief description. 

"Never again!" the students chanted after each name.

The American Heart Association of New York State is counting down the final days of the legislative session with 22 reasons the State Legislature should consider providing lifesaving training in schools.  They’re sharing daily stories of people who have been saved by CPR and others who weren’t as fortunate. 

One of those reasons is Emily Adamczak, who suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at the age of 14, during soccer practice in her freshman year of high school.
