A retired EMT says she couldn't miss the graduation of a woman whose life she saved as a baby.
Amari Jamison, 21, graduated from the Roy Campanella School in Gravesend. Vivian Lomacang and Jimmy Coyle were called to a Bed-Stuy home 21 years ago to help a woman who was in her bathtub, surrounded by blood.
Devin Jamison, Amari's mother, said she didn't know she was pregnant at the time when she gave birth to her daughter.
"They pronounced her dead more than once," Devin Jamison says.
Lomacong says she feels like a second mother to Amari, who has cerebral palsy. She says she'll never forget that day in 1998.
Amari's family tells News 12 they're excited to see their miracle continue to succeed.
Amari says she plans to continue working at The Gap and hopes to attend a training college.
Coyle lost his life on 9/11.
