Marin moms use CPR at party to revive man who was clinically dead

Two Marin moms are still reeling after they saved a San Francisco man's life last weekend using CPR techniques they learned as children. On Sunday afternoon, San Rafael resident Jennifer Ani and San Anselmo resident Michal "Miki" Goralsky were at a party in Ross for first-grade students at the Brandeis Hillel Day School when parent Mike Ryan collapsed and turned purple.

"We were all outside, and it was time for the piƱata and all the kids were in line," Ani said. "I was about 10 feet from him and his eyes rolled back in his head and his knees buckled and he fell to the ground."

After a few moments of chaos, Goralsky began administering compressions to Ryan's chest and Ani performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The older brother of one of the first-graders whisked all of the small children to another part of the property.
