Free heart screening at Granite Hills High School

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Screen your teen - that was the message at a free heart clinic Sunday at Granite Hills High School.

The screenings check for heart abnormalities that can put teenagers at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, also known as SCA. Many parents lined up to take advantage of the free screening.

Sunday’s screening was in honor of Ciara Horton-Van Der Vliet, who was a student who died from SCA in 2011.

Eight hundred and forty teens were screened and eight were found to be at risk for sudden cardiac arrest.
