The face of the CPR dummy that nearly everyone around the world uses for CPR training, nicknamed “Rescue Anne”, was modeled off the death mask of an unidentified young woman pulled from the River Seine in the late 1880s. The death mask was created for public display to assist the police in identifying her, but while she was never identified, the public was taken by her beauty and the mask was copied and distributed around Europe where eventually, in 1958, her face was used to model the CPR dummy.
