Army cadet, Nicole Donato; saving the world one person at a time

| February 6, 2013

Iowa State Daily reports that Iowa State ROTC cadet, Nicole Donato, despite being in an automobile accident and concussed, was able to draw on her cadet training to save another person involved in the accident when she found that he wasn’t breathing, so because of a smashed door, so had to crawl through the vehicle and kick out the door and drag the larger man out of the car, call 911;

Donato performed CPR until a police officer was able to get to the scene. The emergency personnel who assessed the scene credited Donato’s quick reaction with saving the man’s life.

Donato credited the first-aid and CPR training she received from ROTC as the reason behind her quick thinking.

It’s on TAH because it won’t be in the media.

    The training must be considerably better than the minimal approach we were given as recruits.
