A nurse happened to be taking wedding photos at a scenic beach in Dalian at the same time that a drowning man was carried to shore. Without hesitation, the bride-to-be rushed over and started to perform CPR to try to save the man’s life.
Guo Yuanyuan, a nurse at a Dalian hospital, was posing for a photo when she noticed a drowning man being laid down on the beach. The man had suffered a sudden heart attack while swimming. Guo ran to help the stranger and performed CPR on him while waiting for paramedics to arrive. An ambulance made it to the beach some 20 minutes later. However, neither Guo or the doctors were able to save the man’s life.
Even though her dramatic rescue attempt was fruitless, the dutiful nurse has won the admiration of netizens throughout China, who have dubbed her “The Most Beautiful Bride.”
