MIAMI (AP) - A South Florida infant whose aunt used CPR to help save him on a busy South Florida’s highway is in stable condition and smiling.

The 5-month-old baby was fighting a chest infection and crying in the back of his aunt’s car Thursday on the Dolphin Expressway in Miami, when he lost consciousness. Pamela Rauseo halted her SUV, called for help and performed CPR on her nephew. A Miami Herald photographer who happened on the scene captured her efforts and those of other rescuers (https://hrld.us/MMA3le ). The baby was whisked to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Jackson doctor Juan Solano said Friday the infant remained in critical care. The boy was born prematurely and already suffered respiratory issues. Solano hopes international coverage of the boy’s rescue will prompt others to learn CPR.
