MARIETTA--Frightening moments yesterday at McCleskey Middle School in Cobb County after a 14 year-old student suffered a stroke while in fitness class.
Quick action by his teacher and the school nurse helped saved his life.
Jackson Lietch was rushed to Children's Health Care of Atlanta at Egleston, where he is recovering.
It took only seconds before Jackson Leitch's teacher knew something was wrong.
"As soon as I saw his face that told me either a stroke or seizure and when the nurse came in she knew. She was thinking the same thing," said Carin Wilkes, Jackson's teacher.
"Immediately I knew it was a very serious situation so I called 911 on my cell phone as I was assessing Jackson and everything just started happening," said School nurse Becky Slade.
Jackson is now in intensive care.
He will be at CHOA for sometime recovering from the effects of a stroke.
