This is such a sad story. It makes me realize that as we become such a very mixed country ethnically, there are things that need to be communicated in many languages. How to call 911 is clearly one of those things.

Plus, we all pay for 911 services as part of our phone bill. It is sad that she didn't know how to do something so simple that might have helped save her husband's life.

I saw a truck hit a school bus one time right in front of me. Thankfully, there were no children on the bus, but it was an accident in an intersection. I realized after a moment that I should call 911, but thought surely, with all the other witnesses and cell phones at that intersection, someone else had called by then. I was wrong; as it turns out, I was the first caller. I learned then that we want calling 911 to be our first reaction, not our second.

Good to know where the CPR instructions are online. I took a CPR class several years ago but would not be certain about my ability to remember all the details today. Thanks for the link.
