March 15, 2013

This is an amazing story that shows how important it is to know CPR. It aired this morning on The Today Show on NBC.

A woman in Henrietta, Georgia named Susanna Rohm was at home when her 12-week-old baby Isaiah lost conciousness.

Susanna ran outside for help and yelled "somebody call 9-1-1." At the time, two boys - 9-year-old Rocky Hurt and 10-year-old Ethan Wilson - were outside playing football.

They ran inside the house to see what was happening. Susanna splashed water on her baby's face and tried to do CPR.

But the boys stopped her and said she was doing it wrong. They told her how to do it and within seconds, baby Isaiah started breathing again.

The boys learned to do CPR a couple of months ago from signs posted in their school cafeteria.
