Victoria Williams-Gaine, from St Joseph of Cluny Killiney has featured in the news and media recently for saving the life of Mr. Florin Popa. Victoria (16), had learned how to administer life-saving CPR in school just weeks before the Panda Waste worker (39) collapsed with a heart attack outside her home in Shankill, Co Dublin.  Mr Popa, originally from Romania, would have died if not for the quick intervention of the Victoria and they recently  met for the first time since the incident when  Mr Popa thanked Victoria for saving his life . A spokesman for Panda praised Victoria, describing her as a "superstar" and the company has donated a defibrillator to the school as a sign of gratitude.
