Army medic saves man's life at Lynchburg restaurant

A night out to dinner at Crown Sterling in Lynchburg changed two people's lives forever.

The restaurant's owner, Missy Bragg, said a family was having dinner together Friday evening around 8 p.m. when all of a sudden a man lost consciousness.

Bragg said he didn't have a pulse and he wasn't breathing.

Thankfully, Army National Guard Medic Emily Anderson, was there too.

Anderson, who is seven-and-a-half months pregnant, didn't hesitate to come to the man's aid.

"Started the first round of CPR still did not have a pulse back at that time, started the second round of CPR and at that point he began to gain consciousness slowly," she said. "There was someone watching over him that day and put me in the right place at the right time."

"It was totally amazing she was a true hero and so thankful that she was there," Bragg added.
