A shop assistant has helped save a baby girl when her mum suddenly collapsed while she was paying for her shopping at the cash register.
Rebecca was working behind the counter at a convenience store when the young mother walked in. The woman grabbed a soft drink and proceeded to check out.
“Then all of a sudden she had a glazed look on her face and I knew something was wrong,” Rebecca said.
Rebecca made a split-second decision to reach for the baby, as she tried to continue talking to the mum. Rebecca soon realised the mum wasn’t responding at all, she just stood swaying back and forth in front of the counter.
“I’m a mother, I’m a grandmother. It’s motherly instinct to worry about children,” Rebecca said. “I came over to help the girl and she was having a seizure.”
The Colorado shop assistant called emergency services and paramedics quickly arrived. Rebecca handed the baby to a customer as she assisted the woman. The mum who had the seizure has recovered and her and her baby are well – all thanks to Rebecca’s quick thinking.
