Firefighter Rescue

is This Possible?

on the show "Rescue Me" the firefighter rescued a young girl from a burning building. the paramedics gave her cpr but they pronounced her dead on the scene. the the firefighter came and kept giving her cpr then pounding on her chest with a closed fist and she came back to life. is that possible?

It's called a precordial thump. I've seen this done in the hospital and it did work. However, it's only really effective if done right after the person arrests. If someone's been worked on by paramedics for awhile, I doubt this would do anything to help the person.
