Here is a great story of a girl who saves her dad’s life by lifting the car off him and then performing CPR. Lauren Kornaki found her dad pinned underneath his car after the jack had slipped. She was able to lift and knock the car off of him and then proceeded to give him CPR. When she started, her father had no pulse and wasn’t breathing. It took sets of resuscitation to get him breathing again.
One thing we always convey in our classes, is that we take everyday people and turn them into heroes. The simple fact that you know CPR and are ready to use it, prepares you to act when needed. Lauren’s dad, Alec Kornaki had this to say from the ICU where he was recovering; “I’m just so lucky and proud I have daughters that can perform CPR and have the knowledge to save lives.”
