Courtney LoveJohnny Depp once saved ‘s life.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star had to give the Hole singer - who has a history of drink and drug abuse - the kiss of life when she collapsed after a heavy session.

“Nobody has ever loaned me money. I mean, I was going to die on a few occasions. gave me CPR on one. That’s as close as I ever got. I was watching that movie where he plays Dillinger, and I was like ‘Mother f***er, I never had myself any JD except CPR,’” Love said.

Courtney - widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - also revealed strangers gave her money following her financial difficulties earlier this year. She and her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean are currently staying at a New York hotel while they waits for work to be completed on a nearby apartment, and she admits they’ve been treated like royalty.

She told Britain’s Style magazine: “They are the best staff in the world. When my bank account got frozen, we had $14.32 a week, so we lived off the kindness of strangers. The guy at the travel agency put his credit card down for the hotel. How insanely nice is that? And we are on the sixth floor. Not love nor money will buy you this floor.”

CPR Teddy: The “Toy” that Can Save a Life

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Misc. Tech, Toys,

CPR Teddy

Yes, he’s a cuddly and awfully sweet teddy bear, and even has a red heart on his chest. Awwwwwwww! But CPR Teddy is all business, as he was actually designed to teach child and infant CPR and Choking Rescue. Just press his paw, and voice prompts teach you the basics. That red heart? That’s where you perform chest compressions as a beeping metronome keeps the pace. That innocuous-looking bow tie? It lights up green or red according to how well you’re doing. And when you perform rescue breathing, Teddy’s chest will rise up and down. CPR Teddy may be a far cry from our beloved Build-a-Bear, but we love him just the same. Available for $80-$130 USD.
