    A deputy pulled over a car for speeding. That traffic stop saved a 12-day-old baby's life


    https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/12/us/de...TZICo_i_o9FEMU


    (CNN)When Deputy Will Kimbro stopped a car for speeding last month, he didn't know he would end up saving a newborn's life.

    The dramatic episode, which took place during a routine patrol in Berkeley County, South Carolina on June 11, was caught on a newly released video recorded by the officer's body camera.

    As Kimbro stopped the vehicle, the driver got out of the car and shouted that the baby stopped breathing after drinking from a bottle, according to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.
    Her body was limp and blueish from lack of oxygen, the sheriff's office said.

    After asking the mother, who was sitting on the passenger's seat, for the baby's name, the deputy puts the baby on her lap, checks the pulse, and starts massaging her heart as part of lifesaving first aid.

    "Come on baby, cry for me, cry for me," he can be heard saying. "Open those eyes, sweetheart."

    As the baby starts crying, Kimbro says: "As long as she's crying like that she's breathing. I want you to cry. Come on."

    "I think she's gonna be OK. She's breathing," the officer says to reassure the mother.

    He keeps performing CPR because her breathing goes on and off, Kimbro says in the video.

    Finally, the baby's chest starts moving, meaning that she's breathing again on her own. An
    emergency medical team arrives, and Kimbro and the mother recount what has happened.

    The baby was taken to a local hospital for observation and released, said sheriff's spokeswoman Carli R. Drayton.
    "As far as we know, the baby has been doing well," Drayton said.

    "Because of Deputy Kimbro's steadfast, professional and heroic response, the 12-day-old baby was able to live," the sheriff's office said on Facebook.

    Kimbro was awarded a medal for his heroic actions.
    CNN has reached out to Kimbro for comment.

    Elderly man gets wish to ride wave one last time

    https://www.facebook.com/FirstCoastNews/videos/418668215415722/UzpfSTUyODEzNTg5MjoxMDE1NjQ1ODMxODMwNTg5Mw/?__tn__=%2Cd-]-h-R&eid=ARDqVPqGB4WjCVg_eiUg2ABctWefpp-UMVUd5Ae1VTBYt7KAaBIC4aD1r_BZzuXyu4-NP3RrGnz0Aer4


    Yesterday an elderly lady came up to us at the beach and asked if we could help fulfill her husband's wish to ride a wave one last time. She said that he is suffering from dementia and most likely has a year to live. What and amazing experience and on my birthday none the less!" - @Giancola_ryan on Twitter. (North Carolina)

It is brand new, we were the first ones to live in this apartment. The entire conplex here is income based and everyone paya 30% of their income. Its beautiful and I am so thankful for it Every single day! Its a section 8 site based voucher and we have already started filling out everything for next year! If we get housing again next year and they have room in thier voucher program we might be able to move into a house and have the rent controlled at 30%.

    Since we have been in a home things have started to even out. Since then we have had tons of great news but this is the biggest news we have had in awhile.
    I hope things are still going well with you.

    Found an old post of mine. Does anyone know where these members are now? This is what I loved about this forum. Does anyone ever get the feeling?? Like to hear good news as well. Yesterday I was in the store and the young lady was going through her purse counting out coins to pay for the groceries her WIC didn't cover, 2 loaves of bread, a small package of meat from the quick sale (buy before it expires) and some cookies. The bread was more expensive than she thought, it was $1.39 instead of the $1, she thought it was on sale like the buns and had the cashier take the cookies off the tab. You could tell she was quite embarrassed, apologizing to everyone behind her, she was near tears finished the trans and was walking away. I heard mom tell me buy that girl those cookies. So I asked her to wait a min and I told the cashier I wanted them, they were $1.84, the cashier put them in a separate bag and I put my change in with them, I paid cash for my stuff, I know she didn't see that and I'm glad I think she was at the max embarrassment level. I handed her the bag and she started to cry saying her kids hadn't had cookies in a while and it wasn't a necessity, I told her sometimes they are. My mom died one year ago Saturday and told me to get them for her and you always do what mom says. I hope she left the store feeling a little more human, she is not alone, mom gave me a nudge, I listened, it's what she would have done.

    I remember that post from your link! And so many familiar names - some were frequent contributors. People would be happy to jump in and join the discussions, sharing their experiences. We need to keep dropping the pebbles in this pond to see what ripples we can start

    And thank you for your kindness, and your open heart to receive that message from your mom. I hope it sparked hope in that mother's heart and renewed her faith in the basic goodness of people. I hope it sparked someone else in the store to think, "I can do that - share a little kindness." I hope that mom told her kids that they were receiving the blessing of an angel with a gift of cookies - a little thing, perhaps, but something special for that day. Bless you.

    Thank you for your kind words. I hear mom or feel an urge to do something a lot, always have, not a loony I promise, now after I've done something I felt she would do I see a Monarch Butterfly. The day after she died we planned her funeral and when I got home I checked the mail which is out by the road and was literally assaulted by a Monarch Butterfly, it kept flying in my face, kind of freaked me out at first. LOL Now I know every time mom is speaking to me or is near I see one. In the winter I will see a picture somewhere or dream of one. I believe when someone has left this earth they are occasionally given leave to see the ones they left behind. Usually when you need them most or sometimes just to say hi. My sister started winning things, the first thing was a Thomas Kinkade Bible at the start of High School football. She thought she saw mom in a crowd, made eye contact and bought a raffle ticket, Mom loved Thomas Kinkade and she read her bible every night before she went to sleep . She has won several other things, people have started noticing. They never really leave us.

    A friend of mine had a similar experience, but with a dragonfly. He had just helped out a stranger, and when he got to his car, he was greeted by a large beautiful iridescent dragonfly. He said that he knew it was the spirit of our late friend and co-worker, because Eddie was a country boy who mentioned dragonflies in some of the stories he would tell. Other dragonflies have appeared to him since our friend passed last year.
    Be Happy Now.

    I know, you are so right! A smile, a complement, a bag of M&M's, the smallest thing can turn someone's day around. By the way that top looks great on you.
