An unbelievable story out of Spokane, Washington is showing us just how amazing new technology can be when used for good.
As local TV station KXLY reports, it began at a store called Empire Dance Shop. A clerk was alerted about a baby “turning blue.” She is actually a former lifeguard so she lept into action and started doing rescue breathing on the baby after calling 911.
That’s when the magic happened.
A mechanic named Jeff Olson was working at a tire store 2 blocks away when all the sudden, his phone sent him probably the most important push notification of his life.
Olson is a volunteer EMT and has a smartphone app on his phone called “Pulse Point.”
The app knew he was right around the corner and sent him a notification that an emergency was going on at the dance shop.
Olson ran over, was told a baby was going blue, and saved the baby’s life.
Here’s KXLY’s original video story as posted on YouTube by the station:
