gave the Heimlich to my 9 month old daughter. We were in a crowded room and I was the only one who noticed she was choking. Scariest moment of my life Turning over onto your leg and pounding on back
My sis & I snuck out and went to play in the creek. I was 8, she was 10. I fell in & she grabbed my arm and yanked me out but I would have been swept away.
i was having lunch with my dad in a wendy's & there was a man & a woman there was well and i caught the woman's eye and she asked me for help and her husband was having a heart issues and i'm cpr trained and i saved his life that day
We were at Lake Tahoe. My little brother and I decided to swim out to the buoy and back. He was on his high school swim team so I figured he was a strong swimmer. On our way back into the shore he started yelling HELP I'M DROWNING and sinking under the water. He is 5'9 180lbs. I'm 5'3 125lb. I rescue swam him very poorly ( with my mouth barley above the water ). I was trying to talk, telling him everything was fine while trying to keep us both above water. After about what seemed like forever some guys in a canoe came over and helped us. They said they saw us struggling. He was 16 at the time. He will be 32 on Friday. I still pull the I SAVED YOUR LIFE BRO any time I can!!!
I was 19 working for a auto parts company making a delivery and I noticed this Cadillac with smoke coming out of the engine compartment. There was an old lady (80's) sitting in the front seat pounding on her window. I pulled over and got her out of the car and by that time the car engine compartment was in golfed in flames. I got her into my truck and this was life well before cell phones so I had to drive back to my company make the phone call to 911 and by the time they got there the car was completely on fire. Crazy!
