Prince Rupert man recovering at St. Paul's after daughter saves life
In a crisis some people are able to do things they didn't think were possible.
Prince Rupert's Gianna Evans is living proof of that. Earlier this year, the 12-year-old performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on her father before emergency responders arrived, despite not knowing how.
“I watched a movie a couple of days before, and one thing the main character kept saying was 'nothing's impossible'. That's what I was thinking,” Gianna said.
In January Gianna was laying in bed one night when she heard Bill, her dad, arrive home from work.
“As soon as I closed my eyes I heard a big boom,” she said.
Upon investigation, Gianna saw her father gasping for air and turning blue on the hallway floor; Bill had a heart attack on his way up the stairs.
