High School Senior Uses CPR to save a Toddler at Disneyland

Even at the happiest place on Earth, things can sometimes go wrong.  A high school senior from Taft High School became a hero after using CPR to help save a toddler at Disneyland. The Taft High School choir performed at the Disneyland Resort in California and then allowed students to spend the rest of the day in the park. After their performance in front of judges, Sara, a high school senior, was in line for the Dumbo ride when she heard a mother call for help. Sara, a lifeguard with CPR training, rushed to help the mother. Sara stated that she jumped a fence and informed the mother that she was a lifeguard. With the assistance of a nurse, Sara performed CPR on the toddler. The toddler then coughed up spaghetti. Sara later said this was the first time she had ever had to use her CPR training. Disney rewarded the teen with three Fast Passes to skip the lines at three different rides.


I cannot imagine being that panicked mother with a toddler desperately needing medical attention. Thank goodness for everyday heroes that are willing to help out when necessary! Have you heard about Disney’s efforts to recognize their employees that are saving lives or preventing serious injuries? Disney has a special award, the Disney Heroes Award, that is given to employees for their actions both inside and outside of the workplace. Twelve employees were recognized this month alone for their courageous actions, including six employees of the Disneyland Resort in California for performing CPR on a fellow co-worker!

    No we didn’t, but we definitely were not looking for any. There was another lady who was a nurse who came and helped too. We were all just worried about making sure she was ok. When they got her taken care of, we got back in line and rode our ride :o)

    Hi Angie, Did your family receive any special recognition or privileges from Disney for helping?

    My family and I were standing in line at the Magic Carpet ride at WDW, when a lady had a diabetic seizure. My dad is diabetic and had some glucose with him. My family helped the young lady and re-routed the other riders until Disney cast members could help.
