Anthony Keller saves life of little girl

On October 2, 2011 in Kenai, Alaska at the Quality Inn a 5 year old little girl was in the hottub with her guardian. The guardian looked away for a moment and the little girl submerged. She was motionless when they pulled her from the hot tub with a blue complexion. She was also not breathing. During the commotion a man attempted to give CPR.

Anthony Keller was outside and came in to see what was taking place and he noticed the man was not giving correct CPR. Anthony went into action and took control of the scene stating “I’m trained in CPR”. Anthony began giving the 30 compressions to the little girl. These compressions pushed the fluid from the little girls’ lungs and then he gave 2 rescue breaths. At that point the little girl began to gasp and color returned to her face.

Investigating officer Jeff Whannell of the Kenai Police Department reported this event..

I had the pleasure of conducting a CPR/ AED/First Aid class this past August and one of my students went on to save a life.
