As an ambulance had not been called at that time, the Utah Highway Patrol dispatch office was called, with the county paramedics and Moss Ambulance summoned. Unable to find a pulse on the victim, Officer Cragun administered cardio-pulmonary rescusitation (CPR) to Huskett until the paramedics and ambulance arrived. The paramedics' attempt to revive Huskett by electric shock and IV treatment was unsuccessful. Huskett was transported to McKay Dee Hospital, where he was pronounced dead due to a massive coronary attack. Huskett was a resident of Brigham City, Utah. All Rapped up in mid-terms?

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
