(Newser) – A Colorado woman has reached out to thank the anonymous Good Samaritan who saved her life at a Walmart last month—via a newspaper ad. The Summit County woman, identified only as Teresa, stopped breathing after experiencing a seizure and collapsed at a Walmart in Frisco, reports CBS Denver. Walmart employees asked for help over the intercom from anyone with medical experience, and a female customer arrived to perform CPR until medical personnel arrived.

“She came to my aid and I believe that she saved my life that day,” Teresa tells the station. “I’d like to give her a hug and do something nice for her.” A woman, apparently her hero, did call after Teresa placed her thank-you ad in the local newspaper, but she wanted no reward. "I’m glad that there are still people out there that come to aid others,” Teresa says.
