A Trespassey woman was recognized as a hero for performing CPR. The life-saving technique helped save the life of a drowning boy while vacationing at a Florida resort.
Life on line
Dill just arrived at a pool on her resort to meet her husband and friends when she walked into a commotion. Initially, she thought a fight broken out, but she quickly realized a woman was screaming for help while holding the lifeless body of a young boy.
She automatically started with the compressions. After the initial round of compressions, Dill’s police-officer husband found her, realized what was going on and came over to help check the vital signs. It was not until the fourth round of compressions that the boy responded.
They rolled the child on his side and he started to come to and gain some color. The boy was transported to a healthcare facility but was released the next day after making a full recovery.
Luckily, Dill recently had CPR training. She received her certification 8 months ago.
