When Leena was 16, she went on a school hiking trip with her grade 11 P.E class. They were on a hike to some waterfalls when Leena’s heart suddenly stopped beating. It was the worst episode she would experience from her pre-existing heart condition. She collapsed unconcious, falling face-first down a hill. Remarkably, her heart was restarted by the repeated hitting of her chest against the ground as she fell.
