When a young athlete named Christine Newman went missing on a hiking expedition deep in the snow-covered mountains of Squamish, a series of fortunate events led to her survival. The story really is amazing.

Newman met a group of strangers in a cabin, but when she went to use the outhouse in the middle of the night, she fell into a tree well, where she stayed until sometime the next day when she was discovered.

She was showing signs of life, but when pulled from the hole, her heart stopped. The group of six strangers immediately began CPR, mouth-to-mouth, and other life-saving actions on Newman.

Emergency rescue was called, but during the two hours before they arrived, the six rotated CPR duties, never stopping, and always believing that, somehow, their efforts would not be in vain.

Once the emergency crew arrived, they continued CPR and rushed Newman to a specialist. Her case was precarious, but ultimately, she survived thanks to the six heros who never gave up!
