A motorist came to the rescue of a baby who started turning blue on the side of the Dolphin Expressway in Miami on Thursday, the Miami Herald reported.
Pamela Rauseo was stuck in traffic just east of 57th Avenue when her 5-month-old nephew, Sebastian de la Cruz, stopped breathing. Lucila Godoy happened to be stuck in the same traffic and was able to come to Sebastian's aid, performing CPR on the side of the road, the Herald reported.
Rauseo told reporters she was in panic and kept thinking she could not let anything happen to the baby while he was with her.
Rauseo, Godoy and a Sweetwater Police officer each performed CPR until Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived and rushed Sebastian to Jackson Memorial Hospital's pediatrics unit.
The baby was listed in critical but stable condition Friday, a hospital spokeswoman said.
