(CBS/AP) SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - The upcoming promos for "Grey's Anatomy" should pretty much write themselves.

Two girls saved a Sheboygan mother's life by using CPR that one of the girls learned from watching the ABC medical drama.

Wisconsin woman Kandace Seyferth had a severe asthma attack and collapsed at the bottom of the stairs and was unable to breathe Nov. 25. Her 10-year-old daughter Madisyn called 911 and then performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, while her 12-year-old friend, Katelynn Vreeke, pounded on her chest.

The Sheboygan Press reports about four minutes later fire department personnel arrived to take Seyferth to a local hospital.

Fire Chief Jeff Hermann says the girls did what they were supposed to do and should be commended for their actions.

Seyferth says she's very proud of her daughter. The two watch "Grey's Anatomy" together every week.

(Like we said, the promos will write themselves.)
