Hero cheerleader saves football coach's life

INDIANAPOLIS -- Give me an 'H', give me an "E", give me an 'R', give me an 'O'! What does that spell?

Hero.

That's what one Indiana cheerleader is being called after some quick thinking.

The coach of the Indianapolis Tornadoes -- a minor league football team -- collapsed during a game on Saturday.

That's when one of the team's cheerleaders jumped into action and performed CPR.

Jessica Anderson is also an EMT and firefighter.

The coach collapsed because of  the heat.

He is expected to be okay.
