Television can be a powerful thing. It can entertain, educate, and inform. But recently, it was a literal lifesaver when a 21-year-old man performed CPR on a woman and brought her back to life. He said he knew what to do because he watched an episode of the hit TV comedy “The Office” where they explained how to give someone CPR.
Cross is a man that learned CPR from watching television, and it helped him save someone's live.
"While I was on a shift at work, I work as a mechanic, I was driving a customer’s car down the street when I got to a four-way stop sign. I saw a woman in the car with her hazards on and it looked like she was struggling. I pulled over and went up to the car and burst the back windows open with a rock to quickly get inside. The woman was unconscious and stopped breathing. " says Cross
