Alyssa Milano Urges People to Get CPR-Certified After ‘Terrifying’ Car Crash With Uncle

Health Information Relationships

Alyssa Milano spoke out about a tragic car accident she and her uncle got into this week, when her uncle suffered a heart attack at the wheel. In a statement posted to Instagram and Twitter, Milano shared details about the crash, as well as an impassioned plea for people to get trained in giving potentially lifesaving CPR.

“Yesterday, my family suffered a terrifying and traumatic event,” the actor wrote. “I was a passenger in a car my Uncle Mitch was driving when he suffered a serious heart attack, resulting in a car crash,” explained Milano, who has not said whether she sustained any injuries herself. 

The activist shared that she does not know yet if Mitch, an integral part of her and her children’s lives, will make a recovery from the heart attack and accident. “He’s still in the hospital, and we are unsure if he will recover,” she wrote. “Uncle Mitch is such an important part of our family. He’s with us every day, spending time with my children and present in every meaningful part of our lives.”

Milano also used her statement as an opportunity to make a PSA about the value of getting trained and certified in CPR. “Please, take this as your inspiration to get CPR certified,” Milano wrote. “You don’t know when you’ll be called upon to save a life. It’s such a small effort and can have a huge impact.” Milano didn’t specify whether she performed CPR on her uncle. 

The actor also expressed immense gratitude for everyone who has provided assistance in the aftermath, from strangers that stopped at the scene of the accident to help to health care workers at the hospital where she and her uncle were taken. “I am grateful to the people who stopped to help us. I’ll never be able to thank them enough for the care and attention they, along with the first responders, doctors, nurses, and staff at UCLA Medical Center paid to him and to me,” Milano wrote. Milano also requested that the public and the media give her uncle and family “the kindness of privacy as we move through this incredibly painful time.”

Being properly trained in CPR can indeed save lives. CPR (short for cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is an emergency procedure performed on an unconscious person whose breathing or heartbeat has stopped due to a medical event like sudden cardiac arrest, electric shock, or drowning, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. The technique uses manual chest compressions to help maintain the circulation of oxygen-rich blood until the person’s heartbeat and respiration return (as well as, sometimes, mouth-to-mouth respiration of oxygen into another person’s lungs—more on that in a minute).
