Hannah Tripp’s grandfather, Daniel, was visiting from Nebraska and decided to help her wash her car in the driveway. Hannah witnessed her grandfather suddenly collapse but quickly regain consciousness. She called for help as he walked into the garage to take a seat. Within minutes, Daniel was unresponsive again. Hannah's brother and grandmother helped lower Daniel to the floor as she called 911. Hannah started CPR and continued until medical help arrived. Daniel experienced a cardiac arrest but because of Hannah's quick response, she saved his life.
