2: It was a hot sunny day in Virginia Beach, Va. Joey and Dwight decided they were going to go for a run.

3: Joey and Dwight ran 2 miles in 45 minutes. They stoped for a break and Joey had forgot his water.

4: Joey became pale and clamy he tried sitting down. Sitting down did not help so Dwight offerd him a sip of his water. Joey took a sip of the water but still felt faint. Dwight thought it might be a good idea to start walking home.

5: Joey's blood was not cirrculating as well as it should be. Joey suddenly fainted.

6: Dwight panicked he had no idea what to do. He splashed a little water on his face. Luckily Joey did not choke on the water.

7: Some man, Chuck, came out of no where He said "What happend to your friend?" Dwight said " He did not drink enough water and fainted."

8: Chuck lifted Joey's legs above his heart. Chuck took off his shirt and put it under his legs.

9: After a few minutes Joey regained consciousness. Dwight was relieved his friend was okay!!

10: Joey and Dwight thanked Mr.Chuck and headed home.

11: If you ever are in a situation when someone faints do not splash water on their face as they can choke. Do not move them either. Placing a pillow under their head can block airflow.

12: You should lift their feet 8 to 12 inches above their heart; unless you suspect a head injury. Sponge face with water. If you are feeling faint you should sit down and put your head in between your knees.
