According to Fox News.com, a 9-year-old boy and his 10-year-old friend are being hailed as heroes after
helping a woman whose baby stopped breathing. One boy gave instructions on how
to CPR while the other boy waited for an ambulance.
Susanna Rohm said that she was holding her 2-month-old son Isaiah in her lap
on Monday when she realized something was wrong.
"I noticed he looked pale and so I looked at his arm and his leg and
they were limp," said Rohm. "Then I noticed that he looked like he
Scared and home alone, the Marietta
mother couldn't remember how to give CPR. She jumped up and lost her cellphone
in the commotion. There wasn't a landline in the house, so she stepped outside
to get help.
"I had him in my arms and still screaming over and over. Then I
ran outside. I saw two boys playing across the street and I yelled, 'go ask
your parents to call 911,'" said Susanna.
Ethan Wilson and Rocky Hurt were tossing a football in a front yard.
"I was thinking we better go out there to help and actually call 911
instead of getting scared," said Wilson.
Rocky then ran over to help.
"He came in and I had my hand on my baby's chest just screaming and the
little boys said, 'put two fingers on his stomach,'" said Susanna.
"He said, ‘press down five times,' so I did five compressions, and
then he said, ‘breathe in his mouth.'"
After a few minutes little Isaiah belted out a loud cry. An ambulance
arrived moments later.
Rocky said he doesn't know how he kept calm.
"I don't know. I just thought of -- thought of nothing," said
Susanna is convinced things would have ended differently if Rocky and Ethan
hadn't been there.
"If the little boy hadn't shown me how to do the compressions right
here...and said that in that moment. My baby would not be alive right
now. And I am incredibly grateful," said Rohm.
