Two boys in the US are being hailed as heroes after they helped save the life of an unconscious baby by telling the child's mother how to perform CPR.
Georgia mother Susanna Rohm said she was holding her two-month-old son Isaiah in her lap on Monday when she noticed he looked pale and his limbs had gone limp, My Fox Atlanta reports.
In a panic, the home-alone mum lost her mobile phone and with no land line in the house she ran onto the street with her baby in her arms to get help.
She noticed Ethan Wilson and his friend Rocky Hurt throwing a football in a front yard across the street.
"I saw two boys playing across the street and I yelled, 'go ask your parents to call 911'," Ms Rohm said.
Rocky then decided to go and help Ms Rohm while Ethan alerted the authorities.
"He came in and I had my hand on my baby's chest just screaming and the little boy said, 'put two fingers on his stomach,'" Ms Rohm said.
"He said, 'press down five times,' so I did five compressions, and then he said, 'breathe in his mouth.'".
After a few emotionally-charged minutes the baby let out a cry and an ambulance arrived at the scene moments later.
Ms Rohm said she was "incredibly grateful" and her baby would not have survived if the boys had not come to her aid.
Isaiah spent two night in hospital following the scare and has been diagnosed with sleep apnoea.
Rocky, who learnt CPR at school, said he did not know how he managed to keep his cool during the life-threatening incident.
