Seven-Year-Old Learned CPR from YouTube, Saves Mom’s Life

This November, a seven-year-old British girl is credited with saving her mother’s life with CPR after learning how to perform the emergency procedure by watching videos on YouTube.

Jessica Kinder was home feeling sick and watching the holiday movie “The Grinch” when her mother, Becky Green, 32, suddenly collapsed and began having a seizure.

The young girl was quick to act, using her mother’s phone to call emergency officials, and quickly began CPR.

“I put a Christmas film on to make Jessica feel better and the last thing I remember is putting a cup of tea down for her, then I passed out,” Green recalled to South West News Service (SWNS), a British news agency. “When I woke up, the paramedics were here and my little girl was hysterical.”

The mom of two was rushed to a local hospital and was later diagnosed with epilepsy.

“When I realized what had happened I asked her, ‘How did you know what to do?’ She said to me, ‘I saw someone do it on YouTube.’  I couldn’t believe it,” added Green of Jessica, who now aspires to become a nurse or a doctor one day.

“She likes watching videos and I know that she takes things in quite well but I had no idea she had watched a video about CPR,” Green continued. “My little girl straddled me to do CPR because she thought I was dying. She knew she had to put all her weight on me from YouTube videos.”

Sixth Grader Saves Life With CPR

Thanks to 11-year-old  Skylar Berry, 6th grade classes at Orchard Elementary School are a little different than usual. That’s because Berry is adamant that all her peers learn CPR.

Students huddle around Berry as she demonstrated hands-only CPR. Her classmates are learning simple chest compressions to the beat of the disco hit “Stayin’ Alive.”

So why is this 6th  grader so passionate about CPR? She recently used it to save a friend’s life at a birthday pool party. The kids were playing in the pool when they realized that one of their friends was at the bottom. They dragged him out and realized he wasn’t breathing. Checking his pulse, Berry knew she only had one choice to try and save his life.

“It was pretty cool. I’ve never seen an 11-year-old do CPR on another kid. It was so relieving,” says the birthday boy, David Baltzley.

A little overwhelmed by all the attention, the boy is back in school, feeling just fine. Berry credits the Sacramento Metro Fire Department and their Fire Camp for teaching her about CPR and water safety. She’s hoping to spend whatever free time she has this school year to teach others to save lives, including spreading the word about her new CPR club.

“We want to teach other kids that real life situations are no joke,” Berry explains. “It’s no time to mess around.”
