In 2014, a mother started screaming for help when her 11-month-old baby girl stopped breathing at a Walmart store in Missouri.
The incident, which was caught on surveillance video, shows the infant’s mother trying to revive her daughter to no avail.
The manager called 911, but none of the shoppers or staff members knew how to save the infant. In fact, no one knew what to do at all.
Then, a teenager heard the commotion from within a dressing room and did what no one else could.
17-year-old Abby Snodgrass ran out of the room and pushed through the crowd, immediately performing CPR on the infant. As fate would have it, Abby learned CPR in her high school health class a few months before the incident – but never used the technique before.
“The one thing that crossed my mind initially was, ‘What if this doesn’t work?’ And I just had to push it out of my mind and keep going,” she told reporters.
After several frightening moments, the baby girl eventually started breathing again.
This was all thanks to one teenager’s bravery.
