* In January near Alvin, Tex., Andrea Guerero, 18, and
her brother came across a man who was slumped over the
wheel of his truck and not breathing, and Andrea
administered CPR until an ambulance arrived to take the
victim to a hospital, where he recovered. Guerero was
on her way home from a CPR certification exam, which
she had flunked. [Dallas Morning News-AP, Jan93]
* Two doctors, writing in a December 1992 issue of the
British Medical Journal, reported that a teenager,
hospitalized after a fall from an apartment building,
came down with a severe bacterial infection. The
doctors traced the infection to holy water sprinkled on
him by his aunt, who was trying to help him survive the
injuries from his fall. [Globe & Mail, 12-18-92]
