Woman who used CPR to save a good Samaritan being honored


Chippewa Valley (WQOW)- A hero doesn't need a cape or super-human powers. Many times a hero is someone who rushes to help a friend, family member or perhaps a complete stranger.

As the Red Cross prepares to honor heroes throughout the Chippewa Valley WQOW News 18 is introducing you to some of these remarkable people.

Sara Berg is one of 14 people who will be honored at this year's Brave Hearts Real Heroes awards dinner, an event to benefit our local Red Cross. In November of 2011 Sara found herself stranded along I-94 when a stranger stopped to help her change a flat tire. Back on the road, about a mile down I-94 that man went into cardiac arrest. When Sara saw his truck pulled onto the shoulder she didn't hesitate to rush to the rescue.

Her's is one of many amazing and inspiring stories you'll hear during the 2013 Brave Hearts Real Heroes event.  For tickets or more information visit the Hometown Events page.
