She Saved His Life
When a Boy Went into Cardiac Arrest During Baseball Practice, 14-Year-Old Jessica Moncrieff Knew Just What to Do
For the next seven minutes, the high school freshman from Meridian, Idaho, who had taken a babysitting CPR course the year before, pumped his chest with her hands and blew air into his mouth, supplying Justin with a steady flow of oxygen in the critical moments following a cardiac arrest. "She was doing some of the best CPR I've seen," says paramedic Jeremy Schabot, who soon arrived on the scene and helped resuscitate Justin with a defibrillator.
By the time Justin, also 14, was whisked to a nearby hospital, his heart was beating again. Justin was diagnosed with a faulty heart valve and was recently fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator while awaiting surgery to correct the problem. As he looks back on that frightening day on the baseball field, he thinks of Jessica's heroic efforts with awe. "I could have died," says Justin, who met Jessica for pizza a week later and bought her a necklace and teddy bear in appreciation. "What Jessica did is amazing."
