The heart-stopping moment an aunt succsessfully performed CPR on her five-month-old nephew on the side of a road in Miami was caught on camera.
Pamela Rauseo was caring for her baby nephew Sebastian de la Cruz when he suddenly stopped breathing and turned blue as she drove along a highway, reports the NY Daily News.
She leapt out of her vehicle screaming for help with little Sebastian in her arms. Several passers-by stopped, including Miami Herald photographer Al Diaz, who quickly ran to alert a nearby policeman in his patrol car.
The officer, Amauris Bastidasy, rushed over to help as Pamela began CPR on her nephew.
I lifted him up in the air and moved him up and down," Bastidas told the Miami Herald. "He started breathing and crying."
Amauris and fellow Good Samaritan, motorist Lucila Godoy, also helped with the resuscitation efforts.
The tiny youngster, who had been born prematurely, started breathing after Bastidas helped, but then stopped for a second time.
By then, paramedics had arrived and Sebastian was rushed to hospital where he is said to be recovering well.
