A hero teenager saved a dad's life by performing CPR when he suddenly keeled over on a commuter train - and she was only on board out of pure luck. 

Alanah Dunstan, 18, had forgotten it was a public holiday in Perth, Western Australia last Thursday for the death of the Queen and mistakenly travelled into work.

As she returned home on the train, she noticed fellow passenger Gustavo Berna, 45, had started breathing heavily.

Mr Berna - who was suffering a heart attack - collapsed as Ms Dunstan rushed to intervene.   

Ms Dunstan told Daily Mail Australia she had a strong feeling the man had a family, which pushed her to do her best to save him.
