Oklahoma Star Kenneth Murray Saved A Woman’s Life

first_img “She looked like she was dead to be honest,” Murray told The Daily at Big 12 Media Days Monday. “Immediately going through my head was to start CPR. I had my girlfriend call 911.”Murray performed CPR for minutes while Val stood close by on the curb while calling the paramedics. The woman looking after her was frantic and panicking, but Murray persisted. He knew he had to keep going until an ambulance arrived. For a minute, she was unresponsive. Then suddenly, she was awake.Murray performed CPR for several minutes before she woke up and began breathing again.“We got her back, got her breathing,” Murray said. “We got her to the point where she was blinking a little bit.”Murray says that he learned CPR when he was 12 or 13, but this is the first time he’s used it in a real life situation. Luckily he was confident, and did exactly what he needed to assist the woman in her time of need.[The Daily] Oklahoma football's Kenneth Murray interviewed after win over Army.NORMAN, OK – SEPTEMBER 22: Linebacker Kenneth Murray #9 of the Oklahoma Sooners speaks to the media after the game against the Army Black Knights at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on September 22, 2018 in Norman, Oklahoma.
