RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. -- Randleman High School senior Spencer Hamilton has only been CPR certified for about two months through his high school health class.

On Monday, his recent training was put to the test when a woman collapsed in the front of the Asheboro Food Lion where he works.

Hamilton administered compressions for about five minutes until EMS arrived.

"It made me think about how fragile life really is and how important it is to have this certification," Hamilton said.

Hamilton has not heard from or seen the woman since Monday night but hope she's OK.

This is the first year North Carolina students are required by law to complete CPR training in order to graduate.

Former Gov. Bev Perdue signed the legislation into law in 2012.
