Chinese novella on calling 911 and performing CPR during an emergency.

The graphic novella, "How to Save a Life", is a story about an elderly Chinese woman who witnesses a cardiac arrest in her home. The story describes how she calls 9-1-1, requests interpreter services and performs telephone-assisted CPR to save her husband's life (English version starts on page 21).
