Abby Snodgrass, a high school student, never guessed she could end up a hero when she was shopping at Walmart one evening. An 11-month-old baby had stopped breathing in the electronics section of the store, and emergency responder vehicles were still minutes away. When Abby heard about the emergency, she sprang into action.
Abby isn't your average teenager. Not only did she have CPR courses from her local high school, she was also enlisted in the National Guard. Given her experience, Abby could safely give CPR to the baby and was able to help the baby start breathing again.
Abby was originally concerned that the CPR may not work, but according to the interview she gave with ABC news, she was able to push those thoughts out of her mind and continue trying to resuscitate the baby. During an interview with FOX News' Steve Doocy, Abby estimated that the baby had stopped breathing for almost a minute.
