CENTERVILLE, UT (KSL) A Utah woman recently found herself in a precarious situation in a Logan courtroom.

While there as a witness, she stepped in to save the life of the man suing her parents.

“He says, ‘You’re a liar. You’ve been lying,'” said Brooke Allsop, of the man suing Brooke’s parents over a farm lease.

While the 86-year-old man was representing himself in the courtroom, he started to have a seizure.

“I look up and he’s making this sound. It’s the sound when you know something bad has happened,” said Allsop.

Allsop is a certified stroke nurse. In that moment she swung into action.

In courtroom surveillance video, you can hear her leading the charge. The judge even jumped in to take turns administering CPR.
