A Senior Girl Scout in our council, recieved the Medal of Honor this year
for saving her uncles life. The Girl Scout's uncle had major heart attack
(Sorry I can't remember all the details) while she was with him. Her
Senior advisor had encouraged her to take Red Cross First Aid and CPR.
She was able to administer CPR until the ambulance arrived. Because she
witnessed the heart attack, and administered the CPR immediately her
uncles life was saved. The incident was noticed because the scout thanked
her advisor for encouraging her to take the Red Cross courses.
