Web Exclusive: Kids use CPR to save baby

Web Exclusive

(CNN) - A mother whose baby stopped breathing credits two elementary school students for coming to his rescue.

Two Georgia boys helped save the baby's life.

Here's how it all went down...

"I was sitting in the living room with the baby, and I noticed that he was off that day.

He just seemed kind of non-responsive.

Something just didn't feel right.

And I put my finger under his nose and realized he wasn't breathing,"

"We were outside playing football and somebody yelled, 'Call 911,' and so we were kind of freaking out."

"I said that even though if there is a burglar, we still need to help, because it's the right thing to do."

"...and I am just continuing to scream not knowing what to do." "...and then we found that the baby wasn't breathing." "...and then Rocky runs in, who I'd never met, and he's standing behind me and says..." "...to push on the baby's chest five to ten times -- using two fingers -- tilt back the baby's head, plug the nose, and then breath into his mouth."

"He said it so confidently that I just listened to him.

I mean right away." "He, like, screamed, and I told her that that's a good sign, because the baby's breathing."

Nine year old Rocky Hurt and 10-year-old Ethan Wilson learned how to do CPR from posted signs at their school, Sedalia Park Elementary.

"We just wanted to know just in case it happened, but we never knew we would have to do that." "In real life."

"If Rocky hadn't been outside playing right then, I definitely wouldn't have him sitting in my lap right now." "We didn't care if we were on the news; we just cared about saving that baby."

A bill is pending in the Georgia state legislature to require basic CPR training in schools.
