In the late 1880s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was apparently a suicide. A Paris pathologist ordered a plaster death mask of her face. Ironically, in 1958 the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie, on which thousands of students have practiced CPR. Though the girl’s identity remains a mystery, her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time".

Värt att notera är även att Micheal jacksons låt "Smooth Criminal" med refrängen "Annie, are you ok? So, Annie are you ok?" också handlar om vår CPR-flicka Annie ♥ 3
