Raleigh firefighters honored Lauren Roth for performing life-saving CPR on her stepfather before emergency responders came on the scene.
Jim Sink was mowing his lawn when he collapsed due to a heart attack. While he was in the hospital, the first responders finished mowing his lawn as a way to show their support to Lauren for saving his life.
Six first responders and seven firefighters were honored with the SAVE award for going above and beyond in the call of duty and saving a life.
Their advice? CPR education is important and can save lives, as it did for Lauren and Jim's family.
