3-month-old Baby Stopped Breathing On A Plane But God Put The Right Person In The Right Place
After a 3-month-old baby stopped breathing on a plane, a retired nurse jumped right in to save the day!
Spirit Airlines flight 1691 landed last Thursday night with passengers clapping and cheering.
Tamara Panzino, who is retired after being a nurse for 20 years, told FOX 35 Orlando that flight attendants announced over the loudspeaker about 30 minutes after takeoff asking if anyone was a doctor.
The reason for this was because a 3-month-old baby named Anjelé had stopped breathing and started to turn blue in the face. The baby’s parents were frantic and desperately looking for help.
That’s when Tamara jumped right in! She started massaging the baby’s chest and legs, and soon, the baby started breathing again. What a relief!
The parents of three-month-old were so thankful to Tamara for saving their little one. “When you have to step forward and do what’s right, you do it. It was just a happy story, and it made me feel really good,” said Tamara.
FOX 35 meteorologist Ian Cassette, who was a passenger on the same flight, recorded a video of the passengers cheering and flight attendants smiling as the baby’s father bounced Anjelé up and down.
On my flight back from Pittsburgh to Orlando, a baby stopped breathing three rows ahead of me. Thankfully a nurse (Tamara Panzino) was able to get the baby to breathe again. (1) pic.twitter.com/6oDgFCG7FS

“When you have to step forward and do what’s right, you do it. It was just a happy story, and it made me feel really good,” said Panzino.
Cassette said the parents “praised the positive energy of the plane and the heroic actions of Tamara for saving her.” He also commended the flight crew for their “quick action for helping as well.”
