Young man reveals how life lesson his father taught him 21 years ago helped him save a life

It is a common saying that knowledge is power and every piece of information would come handy someday. Well, a young man did not expect that the CPR lessons his father taught him would ever become useful.

A young man identified as Usman Shamaki took to his Twitter page to share how he was able to save a young girl’s life.

According to Usman, his father taught him how to perform CPR on an unconscious person as a child and he was never too happy about the lessons. He further explained that anytime he missed a step, his father would scold him and say: "This is a matter of life and death. This could come in handy one day. It could save a life”, before starting all over.

Well, the lessons came in handy for Usman 21 years later when his neighbour’s daughter had suffered a seizure and he was able to make her conscious again.

This is wonderful news. Indeed not all heroes wear capes.

Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that a lady who had been rescued by a mystery man when she was five reconnected with him 15 years later.

A story of a young lady identified as Maya Hughes and Tom Periello, has since gone viral on social media. According to the story narrated by Hughes, four months after she relocated to their home country, Sierra Leone in 2003, she fell ill and her mum decided to send her back to the US.

However, her mum, Zee Sesay, couldn't go with her and to make matters worse, she couldn't find anyone to go with a then 5-year-old Hughes and out of desperation, begged a stranger now identified as Tom Periello, who was on his way to US for a funeral.
