Transcript for Young woman working at fast-food restaurant springs into action to help child in distress
person of the week. There are so many quiet heroes across this country. Tonight, the young woman at a fast food restaurant, jumping in when needed. Bristol, Tennessee, the white mini van pulling up. The mother, her 3-year-old limp in her arms. He had stopped breathing. She ran to the window to help. The 18-year-old runs out and gives cpr. She say she noticed he began to start breathing again, but faintly. The ambulance arriving in three minutes. I don't like the term hero, because if you see someone hurt, you're going to try and help. She finished her shift, then went to visit the body in the hospital. The blank look in his eyes from when he started to at the hospital, it was huge. It was amazing. And the police officer rushing to the scene in Texas. A young mother and father had called 911. What's the address of your emergency? My son is not breathing. Okay, is he not breathing at all? He's not responding. The officer at the scene in one minute. The mother brings him over and then the officer gives him cpr. The officer shows his father how to give compressions. It continued for several minutes, but it worked. And then Braden standing next to the officer that saved his life. And back in Tennessee, that young woman helping to save a life, too. So many heros in this country. Thanks for watching on a Friday night. I'm David Muir, I hope to see you right back here on Monday. Until then, good night.
