Our daughter Arielle suffered a cardiac arrest at 6:05 Monday evening, January 6. With no warning, her heart stopped beating as she crossed the Colombia Heights Station in her home city of Washington DC. A station video monitor recorded the sequence, showing Arielle stride toward a railing, lean into it, and then slump to the ground. Emerging from the crowd behind her, two medical professionals will intervene and save her life.
So it begins. Welcome to Arielle’s CaringBridge site. Her parents, Tamara and Dwight, will keep family and friends updated here. We appreciate your prayers, support, and encouragement. Thank you for joining the Baker family on our experience of dependence and hope.
