CBS 2 Hero: Lifesaver

Updated: Thursday, December 19 2013, 08:14 AM CST
When Cedar Rapids Xavier teacher and coach Erica Kearns learned CPR, she
never imagined she would use it on her own father.  The day after
Thanksgiving in 2007, her dad, Terry Whitney collapsed.  In a matter of
seconds, Erica was performing CPR.  Her actions, she learned later at
the hospital, saved his life.

Erica and her family are now
advocates for the American Heart Association.  This week they will
travel to the White House for a Community Leaders Briefing.  CBS 2 Hero: Lifesaver
