ordinary heros, parte siete

Sometimes, just being in the right place at the right time can turn an ordinary person into a true hero.

This is the case with Felix Vazquez, who saved the life of a 3-month old infant after his mother dropped him out of the window of their burning apartment building. He then blew air into the soot-covered baby’s lungs until he began breathing again. Because of his quick thinking — and quick reflexes — the baby was uninjured and both he and his mother, who was rescued by firefighters, are doing fine.

If a fire ever breaks out in my apartment building, I want to have this guy around.
