CPR instructor uses training to save newborn puppy

CPR instructor uses training to save newborn puppyTALTY, Texas _ Alicia Pederson awoke to her dog Izzy squealing in pain. Alicia knew Izzy was pregnant and due any day. But what she found in her living room at 2 a.m. took her breath away: Two puppies on the floor. One healthy and wriggling. The other cold, gray and seemingly lifeless.

“I’m thinking one may be OK but the other may be gone. It’s not uncommon for one pup in the litter to not make it,” Alicia recalled. She quickly cleared away the amniotic sacs still surrounding the puppies, then handed the healthy one over to her boyfriend, Kenneth.

In the back of her mind, Alicia figured the puppy in her hand was doomed. Yet as a mother, she knew she had to try something. And then, something even more important happened – Alicia’s extensive training as an American Heart Association employee and CPR instructor kicked in. Click here to read more

MIAMI – An infant is in critical, but stable condition after a medical scare brought traffic to a stop on the Dolphin Expressway Thursday.Five-month-old Sebastian de la Cruz stopped breathing while riding with his aunt on SR 836 around 2:30 p.m. Pamela Rauseo pulled over, begging for help.

“It really was the scariest moment of my life,” said Rauseo. “I don’t know how I remembered what to do, I just couldn’t let him die… I had the baby in my arms and he was completely limp and I kept screaming for help.”

As other drivers realized what was going on, they rushed to help, stalling traffic in the process. According to his aunt, Sebastian was born with premature and suffers from respiratory issues.

“I didn’t feel comfortable performing CPR because my training was so long ago… but I was screaming for help and everyone who was there said they didn’t know how to do anything so I did, and luckily it worked.”

Sweetwater police officer Amauris Bastidas helped Rauseo by performing chest bumps as she breathed into the infant’s mouth. Along with another woman who had pulled over to help, they kept the baby breathing until Miami Fire Rescue was able to get there.

A Miami Herald photographer ran through lanes of traffic to get help. Once rescue crews arrived, he went back for his camera, capturing the tense moments.

“When I saw that she was being assisted, that’s when I ran back to grab the camera,” Al Diaz explained. “It was pretty traumatic.”

As of Friday morning, Sebastian was in critical, but stable condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
