Here Comes the Bride

Here Comes the Bride

PITTSBURGH, PA--A new bride who graduated from Peters Township High School kicked off her high heels while still wearing her wedding gown and revived a woman Saturday who was found unconscious on a Pittsburgh bench.

Julie Stroyne, a trauma nurse at UPMC-Presbyterian hospital, said she revived the woman who was on a bench near Westin Convention Center on Liberty Avenue.

“That’s something I’ll never forget,” said Stroyne, who was walking at the time with her new husband, Andrew Nixon, from their wedding reception held at The Pennsylvanian at 1100 Liberty Ave.

“There’s no time off,” said the 2010 Peters graduate who was a tennis standout in high school.

Her sister, Kaitlyn Stroyne, said a bystander at the time said the woman who appeared to be in her early 20s didn’t have a pulse.

“My sister got down on her knees and immediately began CPR,” Kaitlyn Stroyne said.

“Everyone around us was saying, ‘The bride saved the day,’” she said.

The Stroynes did not get the name or condition of the woman who was taken away by ambulance.

“Once the paramedics stepped in, we kind of stepped back,” Julie Stroyne said.
