AMITYVILLE - A soccer coach is being hailed as a hero after making a great save.

Coach and educator Isha Hamilton says she used her CPR training for the first time in her 11-year career at Edmund W. Miles Middle School in Amityville to save a student.

Seventh-grader Kiavelyn Altagracia fell to the ground unconscious and stopped breathing. With the help of a defibrillator and chest compressions, Kiavelyn began breathing on her own again.

Kiavelyn hopes to be back on the soccer field again very soon. She is waiting on approval from her doctor.
