“A woman was pulled into the turning lane of the road on tenth ave so and frantically rushing to the back seat," Houle wrote. "Immediately first instinct was to pull over and make sure everyone was ok.
“My coworker Jack approaches the woman who is holding her lifeless toddler. The baby is blue and showing no signs of life. Jack immediately rushed with the woman and toddler to the grass on the side of the road and begins to attempt to revive the toddler as I am on the phone with 911.”
A group of men in the Air Force also reportedly witnessed the frantic situation and quickly pulled over to offer their help. One of the airmen began administering CPR to the child.

This once lifeless toddler is now alive thanks to one strangers act of kindness.”
Emergency responders soon arrived and rushed the child to the hospital, but it was the airman’s quick jump into action that reportedly saved the toddler’s life.
