Good News: Neighbors, Coaches, and Long-Lost Siblings
Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .
1. A 19-year-old near Boston named Savennah Mendes-Rodrigues was at home studying on Monday when she heard yelling outside. It turned out a two-year-old had just been pulled from a pool, and he wasn’t breathing.
But luckily, Savennah is CPR certified. So she did chest compressions until paramedics got there. The kid made it, and he’s doing fine.
2. A high school baseball player in Missouri collapsed at practice two weeks ago and didn’t have a pulse. But his coaches knew CPR and saved him. His doctors are still trying to figure out what happened, but he returned to school this week.
3. Two long-lost siblings in Texas reunited after passing each other in the halls of a hospital for years. Christina Sadberry’s 4-year-old son was getting treatment at a children’s hospital in Fort Worth. Meanwhile, a guy named Raymond Turner runs a studio there, where sick kids get to sing and record music.
Earlier this year, Raymond’s wife got him a DNA test. And it showed that Christina . . . who was adopted as a kid . . . happened to be his sister. The best part is, right around the same time, her son also got a clean bill of health.
