I don't really know if I saved a life but possibly? I have this one best friend and we met at a party when we were 14 and she never drank before. She got alcohol poisoning and passed out and started asperating while laying on her back. I knew from experience what she was doing and knew enough to get her off her back and let her be sick outside and get some fresh air. We called her sister to come get her. Another time I caught a girl falling out of a tree over a thorn bush. Probably didn't save her life, but definitely helped her from breaking a few bones and some nasty scars.

I am saving three lives right now. My horses.

They each have issues that mean they would more likely end up on a truck to Mexico (slaughter) if I ever got rid of them. So as far as I'm concerned, I'm saving their lives.

No I have not. I don't think I've really had a major impact on someone's life expectancy yet

Maybe.

I've donated blood several times.

Yes. I called 911 when a facebook friend posted something about killing herself. The cops had to break into her home, and she had OD'ed.
They got there in time, though, and she's over her depression now

Several.

It's my job.

But that amazing feeling never diminishes.

Does it have to be a human life? I don't think I've done that. But I may have saved a little doggie's life. It was standing right in the middle of a VERY busy street. My then-husband and I stopped to see if we could help and we just happened to be in front of the house of someone I knew and he had me go and see if they had a little white dog and he'd try to get the dog. Meanwhile, I guess there was a break in traffic and the dog came up the driveway and was barking at me. My friend's daughter answered and I told her what happened. Then I said hi to my friend.

My friends and I were tubing on the Wabash river. Roach decided to float over the old dam (a drop of about 18 inches). When he went over he fell out of his tube and got caught in the backwaash. He'd float out a few feet then get sucked under by the current and pulled back to the dam, hitting his head on it each time he came up.

I jumped in, grabbed him by the neck and told him if he fought me I"d put him under until he passed out (drowning victims can kill the rescuer if they freak out).

It took about 2 minutes to swim ten feet the current was so strong.

I hauled him out of the water and we had another beer.

Wow. You sure are brave. Nice work!

I had proper training. In the Marines I held a Combat Water Skills Level III, one step below Lifeguard. It's easy to be brave when you know what you're doing.

Yep and have had my life saved several times though I've also died several times which you never want to be resuscitated it's so painful.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/7/14 - 12:30:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
talked three people out of suicide. a complete stranger, a guy i know, and my brother's friend.

Talking people out of suicide is actually beyond difficult it sucks really sucks but so does being forced to take lives and being resuscitated God resuscitation is beyond imaginable pain it's just fu*kin ridiculous.

With your imagination you should be writing books.

Not imagination just strange life that's beyond difficult to talk about thus this is practically a book of life that is ;)

My second cousin almost fell down a cliff but her brother and I helped pull her back up. (It was one of those 'clinging to the edge' moments...I will never forget)
That's pretty much it unless I forgot something...and not counting any indirect life savings that I might not know about...and not counting snails that I've moved off of roads.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/8/14 - 6:37:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not sure. I once had a neighbour collapse and was there for first aid and stuff. But who knows if she had died if I hadn't helped?

Other than that I only saved some lifes by not killing some of the idiots that surround me ...
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/8/14 - 10:21:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
I've pulled my kids above water when they've gone under prior to knowing how to swim, or fished a Cheerio out of their throats when they were toddlers and they were choking, and lots of other little things like that, but nothing where death was clearly the most obvious and looming outcome had I not done something.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/8/14 - 1:30:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
I stopped a friend from killing himself when I was thirteen. He was getting ready to jump off a cliff when I yanked him back.
I saved a random kid from drowning in the surf.
That's about it.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 4/10/14 - 3:18:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, we rescued the neighbor's pets when their house burned down.

I've saved a lot of mice.
5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 4/10/14 - 11:28:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. But I've prevented several.
