  • Yes, as I was stopped on a highway to adjust a mattress that I was moving, a car flew past and straight into a ravine. There were 2 toddlers in there with their mom. Flagged down some help as I didn't have a cell phone at the time and got everyone out to a safe place in case the car was about to blow up. It was a miracle but there were no injuries

  • i saved a two year old from choking. I was at work in my pharmacy when a this guy ran to me screaming his baby was choking. He had given him a gummy worm from the Brachs display.Kid was already turning blue. I pulled it out of the baby's throat and he threw up all over the dad. The dad was pissed at me for the baby throwing up on him. I told him next time dont steal candy for your kid

  • I too. saved a lil one from choking on a hard candy. I was with my friend who was babysitting & she let her have hard candy. She was only about one . I said no but she says I'm babysitting . As soon as she started choking ,my friend covered her head with a pillow. I was terrified. ( I was only 13) But I knew I had to do something so I was going to tip her upside down & as I was I pressed down under her ribs & out it flew. What a relief!. I didn't know the Heimlich then. So the baby cries & then the friend uncovers her head with a pillow & says come here. But she didn't' want any part of her. Seriously, she was turning blue & I don't think wouldn't been her today had I not been there.
