Sometime during the winter of 1880, the body of a young girl was pulled out of the Seine River near the Louvre, Paris. She was unscarred and didn’t appear to have been harmed at all. In fact, bizarrely, she looked completely at peace.
When she was taken to the Paris morgue the morticians were so impressed with her beauty that they made a death mask of her. She became an instant sensation among the Parisians who called her the “Mona Lisa of the Seine”.
She was so loved she became the model for the first CPR dummy which remains in use today. Some refer to her as “the most kissed girl in the world” considering how many Parisian firemen and medics have learned their resuscitation skills with her help.
