Chappie started his life as a CPR manikin that got a little too close to a flash-bang. At age 18, he joined the Army where he tested experimental parachutes. He was later discharged for not being able to recite the soldier's creed. Broken hearted from his discharge, he found a job working as a crash test dummy for a large automobile manufacturer in Detroit. After his employer ran off with millions in bailout money and closed the plant, Chappie moved to Tennessee and applied for a job with TME Training. We were a little skeptical at first, because he was very quiet and always laying around, but once our students got ahold of him, it was game on for Chappie. He now serves as our lead trauma victim role player, lead medical equipment evaluator, and serves as a father figure to our infant & child CPR manikins.
