ROHNERT PARK, Calif. —
An eight-year-old boy went into cardiac arrest when he was struck by a baseball during a little league game in Rohnert Park on Saturday, emergency officials said.
At about 3:35 p.m., the boy was hit in the chest while batting at Colegio Vista Park during a Rohnert Park Cal Ripken Baseball League game, according to Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety.
The boy took several steps toward first base and collapsed on the field, witnesses said.
Two off-duty paramedics who were in the stands rushed to the victim and began administering CPR, officials said.
An ambulance responded and arriving medical personnel applied one defibrillation shock to the victim, who regained consciousness a short time later.
He was taken to a local hospital and later transferred to Children's Hospital in Oakland.
He is expected to survive.
