Everyone should learn CPR skills
Two days before Christmas, a Ruston teen proved just how important those words of advice were.
Phillip White, 16, was visiting with other family members during a holiday get-together when tragedy struck. White’s nephew, 15-month-old Dakota Lowery, fell into a pond and appeared to have drowned.
White jumped into the water, grabbed Dakota, and handed the toddler to his mother. Family members then piled into a van for a trip to the Lincoln General Hospital emergency room.
