Brave man saves a baby – level 3
The dramatic moment--an Australian toddler was brought back to life. This CCTV footage from a supermarket in Perth captures a heroic shopper saving a little girl’s life. Builder Rowan O'Neill came to the rescue moments after the toddler stopped breathing giving her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
The two-year-old girl was left with shoppers while her mother was in a state of panic. The girl’s hysterical father runs in the store to try and save his daughter's life. Customers gather together, turn the toddler upside down, pat her on the back and try the Heimlich maneuver before clearing a counter of shopping bags to give her CPR. After 90 seconds, the little girl opens her eyes, as her father and savior hug in relief.
Interesting words: toddler (baby), gather (meet), pat (hit lightly), Heimlich maneuver (technique that helps people who cannot breathe), CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).
