Two police officers in New York City are being credited with saving the life of a little boy. The officers were on patrol when a car pulled up alongside them and a frantic father told them his toddler had stopped breathing. They grabbed the boy, laid him on the backseat of their patrol car. One officer performed CPR while the the other drove to the hospital.
They made it to the hospital within minutes and handed him over to the staff. Within minutes he was awake and responsive. A few days later he was even well enough to fly to the Dominican Republic with his family.
The boy FaceTimed the two officers to say thank you and the family is planning to reunite to say thank you in person when they get home.
In Denver, there is a high school student named Andrew Regan. He plays on the unified basketball team for his school. And, he has down syndrome. But, he just did something that most basketball players only dream of. He hit a half court shot... at the buzzer.
The video has since gone viral. It was all over ESPN, The Today Show and you can see it here.
And finally, a mechanic saved a woman's life by using a CPR technique he learned on the tv show "The Office".
A man spotted a woman unconscious in her car and broke the window with a rock. He remembered the scene from The Office where Michael Scott took a CPR lesson where he learned to do chest compressions in time with the Bee Gees "Stayin Alive"
And well, it worked. After about a minute, the woman took a breath. The paramedics that showed up told him that if he hadn't jumped in when he did, the woman may not have made it.
