Sup Travellers?! Pamela Rauseo almost lost her 5 month old nephew, Sebastian de la Cruz, on Thursday evening after he had breathing complications. But thanks to some quick thinkers and good Samaritans, young Sebastian can live to breathe another day. 

According to reports from the Miami Herald the 5 month old had stopped breathing while in the car with his aunt. Rauseo quickly caught on and pulled her SUV over on the Dolphin Expressway, carrying the baby from the car screaming for help. Instead of ignoring the woman's cries, a group of good Samaritans came to her help.  

"A woman pops out of her car holding a baby screaming, 'Help me! Help me! My baby is not breathing,'" an eye witness recalled. 

Rauseo began performing CPR on the child and another woman jumped from her car to help. There was also a police officer stuck in traffic who wasn't aware of what was going on but was called to action by a good Samaritan who went looking for help. The officer quickly went to the woman's aid and took over chest compressions. 

Two other Miami-Dade fire and rescue officials, also stuck in traffic, joined them, and they all managed to get Sebastian breathing again before paramedics arrived. He is in stable condition today. 

"I was just thinking about my sister, like, 'I can't, I can't let this happen, I can't, I can't,'" says Rauseo. "'She trusted me with her baby, and I can't let this baby die on me.'"

I'm sure that when Sebastian gets older he's going to be very grateful to all the good people who took time out of their busy day to save his life. I salute all of them because no one in their right mind should be able to sit comfortably in their car while a baby is dying. That's just inhumane. This story right here is just a reminder that there are still humans in this world. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
