A team of Good Samaritans and public safety professionals saved the life of a 5-month-old boy yesterday by performing CPR on a busy Miami highway. Pamela Rauseo realized something was wrong with her nephew, Sebastian de la Cruz, and immediately pulled her car to the left side of the highway. After taking him out of his car seat and realizing that he was not responding, Rauseo "tried to call 911, but I was just so nervous my hands wouldn't function." Fortunately, after screaming for help, a handful of people (also stuck in traffic) stopped to help. After a Good Samaritan performed CPR, the infant began breathing again on his own. He stopped breathing once more before being taken in an ambulance to Jackson Memorial Hospital. According to Rauseo, Sebastian de la Cruz is in critical condition today, but is expected to survive.
