Natalya Kuznetsova, a graduate of the Ural State Medical University, now obstetrician-gynecologist at the Municipal Hospital No. 40 (Ekaterinburg), saved a life while on vacation. For an hour, she was busy resuscitating a man who had nearly drowned.
As told by the press service of the hospital, Natalia rested with her family at the Volga river feeder. On the afternoon of August 13, she was on the beach in the Kilyakovka village, Sredneakhtubinsky district, when it became known that a man had jumped head first from the pontoon. He rose from the water and fell again, after which his body was caught in the current. Natalia was told about this by her 11-year-old brother. The woman threw herself into the water to the victim, turned him over on his back and, with the help of the family, pulled him ashore. She had performed CPR for an hour, even when the family of the 35-year-old man was sure he was dead. When the ambulance arrived, his life was already saved.
Natalia Kuznetsova has been working at City Clinical Hospital No. 40 for three years: two years as an intern of the Ural State Medical University, and a year as a doctor at a 24-hour gynecological hospital. She did not tell anyone about her heroic deed, so it became known about just now as the information was shared by the employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Volgograd region.
