Massachusetts Woman's Life Saved by DoorDasher: 'She's My Guardian Angel'


Massachusetts Woman's Life Saved by DoorDasher: 'She's My Guardian Angel'

A Massachusetts woman who ordered a pizza had no idea her delivery driver would save her life.

Caryn Hebert Sullivan put in the call for a late dinner on February 11, with Door Dash. The driver, Sophia Furtado delivered her order to an address in the small community of West Island Fairhaven.

"It was a normal night for me," Furtado told CNN Thursday, "I was almost at the end of my shift."

When Furtado arrived at the house around 10 p.m., she saw Sullivan lying on the ground outside, bleeding from her head, the New York Post reported.

Sullivan had a previous arm injury and a bad knee and was waiting outside for the delivery. She said when she turned, her arm and knee gave out and she fell and hit her head on the way down.

"I just remember laying on my driveway thinking, 'this is pretty much over,' " Sullivan recalled. "I was laying there and saw a lot of white clouds."

Furtado acted quickly thanks to her previous medical knowledge from her time training as an Emergency Medical Technician, however, she had failed the National Registry test. She said Sullivan's blood was congealing and she had estimated she had been lying outside for about 15 to 20 minutes.

"Caryn was unresponsive, and her eyes kept rolling to the back of her head," Furtado said, "I felt like I was going to lose her."

Sullivan's husband Robert had been asleep inside the house but woke up when he heard Furtado calling for help.

She told him to get some supplies and she called 911 for help.

Officer Jillian Jodoin of the Fairhaven Police Department said Furtado talked with the dispatcher while rendering aid.

"At that moment Sophia became a part of our team to aid Caryn." Jodoin told CNN, "I asked her if it was possible for her to keep stabilizing Caryn's neck to keep her spine safe, her answer was, 'I'm not going anywhere.' "

Furtado stayed with Sullivan until she was transported to the hospital.

Sullivan stayed in the hospital for three weeks following the incident and suffered from two severe brain bleeds.
