Firefighters and medics try to resuscitate four-year old George Ray, after his evacuation of his burning home. Although the new technique of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation is called 'the kiss of life', George passed away even if firefighters and medics had attempted to save him. George was at home with his brother (3) and sister (1), while his mother had stepped out briefly to visit the neighbors. While she was out, a gas stove fell over and started a fire. Only the baby survived.
