KALISPELL -- Columbia Falls High staffers used cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and an automated external defibrillator to restore the heartbeat of a 16-year-old student who collapsed during gym class.

Health and physical education teacher Troy Bowman and school nurse Cathy Dragonfly aided the boy on Wednesday morning. He was then taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit later Wednesday.

Superintendent Michael Nicosia says it is unclear what caused the student to collapse.
