The Bride Saved the Day

The Bride Saved the Day

PITTSBURGH, PA -- A new bride didn’t let her white gown stop her from reviving a woman who was unconscious on a bench in Pittsburgh.

Julie Stroyne, a trauma nurse at UPMC-Presbyterian and a 2014 graduate of Otterbein’s nursing program, was walking in downtown Pittsburgh Saturday night after her wedding reception when she and others from her wedding party saw the ailing woman.

“We were just about to go through the doors,” Julie told KDKA-TV, “and then we heard somebody scream, ‘Does anybody know CPR? Is anybody a doctor’?’”

Her sister Kaitlyn Stroyne tells the Observer-Reporter the woman had no pulse. She says Stroyne kicked off her heels and got down on her knees while others called 911.

“My sister got down on her knees and immediately began CPR,” Kaitlyn Stroyne said. “Everyone around us was saying, ‘The bride saved the day.'”

The newlyweds didn’t get the woman’s name and don’t know her condition, since once paramedics arrived they “kind of stepped back.”

Julie Stroyne says “there’s no time off” a nurse’s duties.
