A 9-year-old Arizona boy saved his little sister, drowning in a backyard pool. Tristin Saghin said he learned CPR by watching television.
Mesa Fire Department firefighter/paramedic, Captain Forrest Smith says Tristin Saghin saved his younger sister’s life when he rescued her after he found her floating in a swimming pool, not breathing. Tristin imitated CPR that he has seen on a movie, and successfully carried it out on his nearly dead sister. She was transported to Cardon Children’s Medical Center and is expected to have a complete recovery.
Tristin said he learned CPR from watching Blackhawk Down were there is a scene of CPR.
We’ve tried to turn this movie off a hundred times, and he watches these scenes over and over these scenes over and over. He dresses up like a medic and he runs around doing these things, and we always thought it was so silly, but you know what? … that silly movie that cost a few dollars? … saved our daughter’s life.
– Chris Saghin, Father of Tristin and Brook
