Kenmore teen's CPR saves father

OK - she was called on to act, she acted, it wasn't a random stranger, it was her dad, he's alive. This happens.

On Tuesday, October 19, 30 friends and family watched as the Northshore Fire Department Board of Commissioners presented a commendation to a 17 year old Inglemoor High School student who saved her father's life with the CPR she learned in health class at school.

On August 14 of this year, Kirsten Baker found her father lying unconscious on the living room floor. She performed CPR until the Northshore Emergency Medical Technicians arrived to take over. Kirsten’s quick response saved her father’s life.

Commissioner Kae Peterson praised Kirsten's quick thinking and courageous action. Her father, Troy Baker, hugged her and said “Super proud to call her my daughter. The best in the world right here.”
