Cheerleader Saves Football Coach

An Indiana cheerleader came to the rescue when the coach of a minor league football team collapsed on the field.

Jessica Anderson is a member of the Syrens cheerleading squad.

Good thing -- she's also an E-M-T and firefighter.

When the Indianapolis Tornados coach collapsed during Saturday's game -- Anderson gave him C-P-R.

Now, some are calling her a life saver.

"It's nice to get the reaction from the crowd and the players and my teammates and stuff. It's really nice to have that."

The coach was taken to the hospital.

Local news station W-I-S-H reports he was diagnosed with having high blood sugar and high blood pressure.

The station reports at last check-- he was up and talking.
