Early this morning we reported on the rescue of a family by a group of good samaritans. The original video was intense and a little hard to watch. You sat there praying along with them as Tom Mitchell tries to revive a seemingly list baby. If nothing else, the video showed that there’s still a lot of good in this world and that people can work together to do what’s needed, to do what’s right.
Here’s a partial from that story:
Tom, unfortunately, lacked the strength to be helpful but very good Samaritans were on scene and Tom shot the incredible rescue on his phone.
“The infant is white, going blue-ish grey.” Tom says. “Oh my, no color.” Schechter reacts looking at the video.
“No color at all and the eyes were not focused when I looked down at her.” replied Tom.That’s the moment when Tom would find his role in this incredible rescue. He puts the phone in his pocket.
Then a woman on scene comes over, steps over Tom’s shoulder and starts to pray as he begins to do CPR.
“Dear Jesus, please let this baby breathe.” she prays. “Dear Jesus, please let this baby breathe. Well the first prayer she said I felt a response in that child.”
Tom and the Good Samaritans turned their attention to the toddler, who they also revived.
When asked why he felt like this story was one he had to share, Tom said: “I think it shows how the community and strangers all come together.”
And now see the moment a set of parents get to meet one of the men who saved their baby’s life.
Here’s the rescue video:
