Holy. Shiat. As a parent of an 18 month old, I'm not too far past the caring for an infant days. That story and those pictures brought tears to my eyes. I can't imagine being that parent, watching your child slowly suffocate, and miraculously the traffic jam is chock full of the exact people you need to save your baby's life.

This is one of those rare cases when the Florida tag deserves to be trumped.

Not to be snarky but the aunt is the hero here.. She gave CPR and brought the baby back to life..

I have a six-month-old son. These pictures made me tear up. They're so tiny.

As far as I can tell, there was no parent on scene.

The baby's aunt was the one who saved him by performing CPR.

I'm not entirely sure from the article what the "heroes" did except for looking important.

The aunt did rescue breathing. The cop was the one who did the chest compressions.

If you read those pesky word things that surround the pictures you'd learn that both the police and the aunt performed CPR, and that the child started breathing again when the officer was doing it.

FTFA:

Diaz alerted police officer Amauris Bastidas, who rushed in to take over performing CPR.
'He started breathing and crying. Then he started not breathing again,' Bastidas said.
Just as the baby started to breathe again, more help arrived after Anthony Trim and Alvaro Tonanez from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue heard the emergency call while stuck in traffic.
The rescue workers were able to keep Sebastian breathing until paramedics arrived.
 
2014-02-21 12:42:27 AM

hardinparamedic: Diaz quickly jogged through traffic lanes to summon more help. He found Sweetwater police officer Amauris Bastidas, who ran to the scene and took over CPR for Godoy, performing chest pumps while Rauseo breathed into the baby's mouth.


Still not seeing why the Heroic Officers doing something they are trained and highly paid for are so much more heroic than the scumbag civilians.

At least it doesn't sound like they're charging the aunt for performing CPR without certification.

2014-02-21 12:44:23 AM

hardinparamedic: And that's why you learn CPR.


Came here to say this.
I've gone through the ever changing classes for over 30 years. I've used that training once, one farking time in over 30 years. But I saved a life and that made up for every boring minute of classroom time and then some.

All photojournalists are award-winning. It goes something like this:

PJ: Boss, I need a raise.
Publisher: No. Here, have an award.
PJ: Ooh, I'm happy again for a while.

hardinparamedic: Christ, you're dumb.


I saw the picture in the article.  As I recall two-person infant CPR, he would be using both of his hands, but neither of them are anywhere near the baby's chest.

Let me guess, your professional opinion is that CPR is only for highly-compensated professionals?

Hating all cops, regardless of the situation, is more important than the facts.

Yes, that is why he said upthread that people should learn CPR. I took from that that he meant everybody, not just the pros.

Really, you're judging his actions by a photo that took 1/60 th of a second or less?

Having a son that is 2 1/2 weeks old, things like this terrify me, and make me glad I'm CPR certified and his mother a licensed healthcare provider. But it still doesn't change me wanting to wake up every half an hour to make sure he is still ok... Sudden Infant Death Syndrome will keep us both on edge for the next year or so, and is currently the cause of many sleepless nights for the two of us.

Thank you for re-enforcing the quoted statement.

Anyone who doesn't work with sick kids who can spring into action in a situation like that is a hero.

And no. That's the preferred way for two man CPR by healthcare providers. Two finger/one hand can still be done and is taught to laypersons.

But by all means. Don't let reality stop you. Yer on a roll!

This is a bit of a tangent, but when our daughter was born, I was terrified of SIDS. I found something that really helped us sleep at night, called the "snuza go". It clips on baby's diaper and makes an insane alarm if they don't move for 15 or 18 seconds, or if they move fewer than like 8 times in 60 seconds. Check it out on Amazon here. I swear I don't work for them, and I swear this thing changed our lives.

You just have to hate on EVERYTHING that wears a badge, don't you? You were wrong, the cops and medics did a good thing, and YOU need to go get some Preparation H for this wholly unwarranted butthurt this time, okay?

And you know what, from merely posting that and exposing me to that product, you may very well have changed ours as well.

In fact, that seems to be the collegial consensus here.
