Now to the miracle rescue many of us have been talking about. The woman giving cpr on the highway to her infant nephew. We're going to talk to her, see the baby, meet the mama. First, here's their story. These are the photos that have the internet buzzing. The hero aunt, Pamela Ra urk Seo, trying desperately to save her unconscious nephew's wife. She was stuck in traffic when she noticed 5-month-old Sebastian, born premature with respiratory issues, had stopped breathing and was turning blue. She began cpr as fellow drivers raced in to help. One of them Al Diaz, "The Miami herald" paragrapher. Sflit was pretty traumatic. Reporter: The cpr worked at first. But then the baby stopped breathing again. Rauseo started cpr again. Joining us now, the hero auntie, Pamela rauseo, baby Sebastian and his mother. Mom, how is your baby boy doing this morning? Chlt he's doing good. He was sleeping before we left. That's a good sign. We're grateful that you're a nurse in that very hospital where your son is. Have doctors been able to determine what's going on here? No, not yet. Today, we'll start some testing that they want to perform on him. So hopefully, today, we'll have some answers. All right, Pamela, take us back. What happened? And how did you know something wasn't right? We were in the car. I was driving, and when he stopped crying, I just -- I really had a strong feeling that something was off. And that's when I went back to check up on him and I saw him sleeping. But he looked peal. When I touched him, he was limp. His body, his hands. I was so nervous. My fingers coulden dial 911. So I got out of the car, I started screaming for help, asking someone, anyone to see if they can do cpr on him. I got on my knees and I started performing cpr. Luckily, after a while, he responded. The reason so many people know about this story, of course, the pictures. When you both saw those pictures, Pam larks what was your reaction when you sea them? Once I got to see those images, it -- it showed me how terrifying it really seemed. It is one thing to tell someone. It's another thing to actually see it. And for you, Paola, when you saw the pictures? It was very scary. I get very emotional just thinking about it because -- he was purple. You know, and me knowing, like, what that means is harder. It's very hard on me. Oh, hon, we -- it's totally understandable. We're grateful he's doing well. I know that your sister, you have a special relationship. She's always had a special relationship with your son. Talk about that. It's inspired her in some way. When I first found out I was pregnant, the first person I called was her. She was so excited that her kids were going have another cousin. And she started designing his room because that's what she does, and she just wanted every detail to be so perfect. And special for him. And, speaking of babies, uh, is there something you want to share with us? Yes, I recently found out before I rourn returned back to work that Sebastian will be a big brother. What a way to start the week. This story has really -- uplifted us all. We're continuing to think of you and give Sebastian a big hug for us the. You all take care.
