CPR Saves Lives

A story in my local paper caught my eye today. A two year old boy was hit by a truck. A neighbor, Jennifer Elder, heard the thud and ran to the scene. She came across a man holding his lifeless bloodied son, sobbing. Jennifer administered CPR and mouth to mouth respiration and the boy's heart began beating again. The boy is now in serious condition at Children's hospital. Another person prevented the vehicle that hit the boy from leaving. This driver is suspected of driving under the influence. Heroes all.
