Fearless Friday: Teen Girls Save Man’s Life

A couple of best friends saw a man was in need of CPR and they jumped on the case.

It was about 9 p.m. Nicole Enick pulled over in the parking lot of the McDonald’s off Marine Drive NE. The girls noticed a man in a nearby car wasn’t moving. The man’s friends were gathered around, shaking him and dumping cold water on him. Others were standing around, watching.
Hailey and Jasmine knew what to do. The Everett High School freshmen had recently taken CPR training from their health teacher, Darrell Olson.

Yes, the girls did what they were told in school.

From class, they knew not to stop, Hailey said. After about five minutes, the man started gasping for air. Hailey’s little sister, Meleah, 11, watched it all take place. A few minutes later, police and paramedics arrived and took over. One of the police officers on scene told the girls the man wouldn’t have made it without their CPR, Hailey said. They believed the man, who appeared to be in his 30s, had a drug overdose.

This last quote from mom is sadly true.

“We’re so proud of her,” Nicole Enick said. “I’m so amazed. She was 14 and she was able to keep herself together. You never expect people at a young age to be able to do something like that. Other people just look away.”

Can we change that? Let’s change that.

  1. amazing story! Thanks so much for posting it! I’m doing a similar thing over on the blog I’m working on. Trying to spread the good and not the bad. (since so much now days is all about the bad society, the evilness of people. I’d rather speak of heroes)

    • Yeah you get tired of hearing the doom and gloom. It strikes me as odd that bad guys get more attention and we have to “restore our faith in humanity” when there are plenty of good people out there doing something every day. I hope your blog is a big success.
