Nurse of the Day: Chinese Bride Rushes Out of Her Wedding Photos to Give a Drowning Man CPR
Dressed in her wedding gown, celebrating with family, a call of distress pulls a heroic bride into action.
A 25-year-old newly married woman was taking her wedding photos on a beach when a drowning man was pulled from the ocean.
About 100 feet away, Guo Yuanyuan, who was a cardiac nurse at a local hospital, happened to be shooting her wedding photographs on the same beach.
Without thinking, she jumped off a three foot ledge and rushed to the scene while still wearing her wedding gown.
She then proceeded to perform CPR on the man as well as giving him mouth to mouth resuscitation for over 20 minutes.
In the process of saving the man, Guo had ruined her wedding dress, spoilt her make-up and broke her nails.
Very sadly, she was not able to save the man's life.
When paramedics arrived on the scene, they declared the man dead and said the cause was a heart attack.
The Daily Mail quotes Guo about the event:
"At that time, I only remember that I was a nurse. My career's responsibilities are higher than that of a bride."
