It’s every parent’s worst nightmare to be in a situation where your child is suffering, and you feel utterly helpless.
Back in 2013, Amy brought her two-year-old daughter to a grocery store in Australia, expecting an ordinary day of shopping. Suddenly, her child collapsed and was not breathing. Amy started screaming, and that’s when a tattooed stranger came to the rescue.
Surveillance footage caught Rowan O’Neill, a builder, fighting to resuscitate the unconscious child using the life-saving skills he learned in school. O’Neill was terrified he wouldn’t remember what to do, but he took control over the situation and began performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
O’Neill and another stranger took turns performing the Heimlich maneuver and CPR on the infant. Miraculously, the little girl began breathing again! It’s amazing to see people, regardless of class or skin color, helping each other in such a powerful way.
“I think there’s not much that could (match) up to this,” O’Neill told his local news station. “I… think that if I live to be 100, if I never have to deal with something like this again, I’ll die a happy man.”
Families should be armed and prepared by learning adult and infant first aid/CPR. God forbid you need those skills, but knowing them could save a life. We should all learn from this act of human compassion.
