Here is another story about a life saved by CPR. Knowing that CPR is important and can help to preserve or save a life is only half of the battle. Learning how to properly administer it is the other half.
Alexandra Robinson of Landgrove, Vermont, was on hand at a sports center on Friday, when a 6-year-old girl lost consciousness while playing in a pool. She heard a little boy say that they needed help, and quickly went over to the pool area, where she found a mom had the girl slung over her shoulder, totally lifeless.
She acted immediately, putting the girl down on the pool deck, and went straight into compressions. She felt that she was doing CPR for a few minutes before the girl regained her consciousness, though everything seemed to be moving in slow motion in her perception.
The girl has been recovering nicely, since the rescue.
