Hope Goins Gives The Gift of Life

A little girl from Hagerstown who lost her life in a fire is giving hope to two other families.

Three-year-old Hope Goins was rescued from a fire at her Hagerstown home last Wednesday, deprived of oxygen and with no heartbeat.

Hagerstown firefighter John Murray first discovered Hope cradled in her mother’s arms and carried her to paramedics.

“Her and her mother were together,” Murray says. “(I) reached down and put Hope in my arms and down the steps"

The mother, Patricia Goins, was pronounced dead at the scene. But after nearly an hour of CPR, the little girl's heart miraculously started beating again and her family had renewed hope she would survive.
