There are no ‘wrong turns’ on the road of life. Nobody knows that better than American Red Cross Volunteer Marian Green who recently came to the aid of a woman suspected of having a heart attack. Marian manages the Red Cross Donation Center in Lumberton, North Carolina.

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, after a busy morning of sorting out donations for the victims of Hurricane Matthew, Marion decided to make a lunch run for her staff.

“I took a wrong turn and got lost, so I pulled into a gas station to ask for directions and I noticed the attendant wasn’t looking very well,” said Marian, who is a retired Emergency Medical Technician. “I saw that she was having trouble breathing so I had her sit down. She had all the indications of someone having a heart attack… I asked her if I could call for help and she said, ‘OK.’ When the ambulance arrived, they evaluated her and immediately rushed her to the emergency room.”

After hearing the news of what had happened, Red Cross Volunteers at the donation center gave their supervisor a well-deserved standing ovation.
