Woman Performs CPR on Baby Along Florida Highway

Miami, Florida – Pamela Rauseo was driving along the Dolphin Highway (State Road 836) during bumper to bumper traffic when her vocal 5-month-old nephew abruptly stopped crying. The tiny lad was suffering from a cold and was very unhappy in his car seat, but something about the way he stopped crying gave her a sense of alarm.

After parking her car along the shoulder of the highway, she examined the baby only to find it listless with its countenance turning blue. In a state of fright, she grabbed the boy and stepped out of the car crying out for help. Thankfully, help came. The first person to assist her was a Venezuelan woman by the name of Lucila Godoy. As luck would have it, Godoy had taken an infant CPR class. Shortly thereafter, Officer Amauris Bastidas of the Sweetwater Police Department arrived on the scene. Both Officer Bastidas and Mrs. Godoy worked as a team to administer CPR to the child who resumed breathing.

They weren’t out of the woods yet as the child stopped breathing a second time, but once more the good Samaritans revived the child. Finally, an ambulance arrived and took the baby to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.
