ROCKAWAY - A Morris County teen is being hailed as a hero after her quick actions may have helped save a man's life.

Christa Fairclough was in the middle of a game at Rockaway Lanes with her mother and little cousin Michael Friday night, when a 75-year-old man collapsed in the lane next to them.

The 16-year-old sprung into action performing CPR on the man. Fairclough says she learned how to perform CPR recently in school.

Christa's mother says the 75-year-old man is alive, but still in critical condition.
