This is why Baby Bodyguards is developing a CPR curriculum for school aged children. What a blessing the two young boys were outside at that moment and a reminder to us all how important it is to learn CPR.
Susanna Rohm was sitting in her Marietta, Ga., living room last week with her 12-week-old son Isiah when she noticed he’d stopped breathing. Outside, two boys Rohm didn’t know, Rocky Hurt, 9, and Ethan Wilson, were playing football when they heard Rohm yell to call 911. “I said, even if it’s a burglar we still need to help because it’s the right thing to do,” Rocky recalled. The pair — who had learned CPR from signs at school — rushed into the house and led the distraught mom through the life-saving procedure. It worked. “If Rocky hadn’t been outside playing right then, I definitely would not have the baby sitting in my lap right now,” Rohm said. The young heroes’ reward? “We didn’t care if we were on the news, we just cared about saving that baby.”
