Amazing Hero Saves a Baby not Breathing and Near Death


Originally posted on Kindness Blog:

A heroic builder has told how he was “terrified” as he fought to resuscitate a stranger’s unconscious child in an Australian supermarket.

CCTV footage shows Rowan O’Neill leaping to the rescue of two-year-old Shaylar Collard, who had collapsed and was not breathing.

As the toddler’s mother, Amy Collard, ran outside the Perth store to fetch husband Michael Narkle, Mr O’Neill began trying to clear the girl’s airways before starting mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

“I was just doing some shopping (and) the mother came by and starting screaming: ‘Somebody help me, my baby, my baby’s not breathing’,” he said.

Mr O’Neill said he had received basic training in resuscitation while at school but thought he had forgotten what to do.

“I was very terrified,” he said. “It was one of those situations where you don’t know how it’s going to turn out. It’s the best possible outcome we could have hoped for at…

kindness to a homeless mother and her children

Here’s my story:

Tonight my daughter and I were eating at our downtown McDonald’s. Because of its close proximity to the Rescue Mission and the Greyhound bus station it has become a hang out for the homeless. As we were leaving I noticed a mother with her two children entering McDonald’s from the direction of the bus station. She was dragging a heavy piece of luggage and the kids were wearing fully loaded backpacks. I instantly thought about buying dinner for them but I was running late to my daughter’s dance class and already half way out of the parking lot.

After dropping my daughter off to her class I could not stop thinking about that mother and her kids. I drove around until I found them huddled together in the dark outside of the bus station. I started to get…

“The guys house caught fire and the troopers GPS unit jammed while he was driving out there. The drive to their house was MUCH farther then the .gif depicts.

I can’t find the original video in where I saw it, but there it was stated the dogs owner was standing outside of the house as it was burning and said to the dog: “Buddy, we need to get help.” It was only at this point that the dog ran off until it found the trooper. It’s somewhere around this point that the gif begins and the dog starts running back home (Also note that there’s a good chunk of video missing in the image). The trooper stated that the dog on numerous occasions looked over it’s shoulder and slowed down if the distance between them was too far, as if to make sure that he was following…

A photo demonstrating the bond between a man and his dog broke hearts across the Internet.The picture shows Figo, a K-9 officer, paying his last respects at the funeral of his fallen human partner, Kentucky police officer Jason Ellis.

The picture generated hundreds of comments after being posted on Reddit.

Figo was retired after his partner’s death and is now living with Ellis’ family. Bardstown, Ky., police chief Rick McCubbin told the Associated Press said that the dog and Ellis were “true partners.”

November 1 is just around the corner! :O


Do you know what your plot will be? I don’t … yet. I need to get a Muse tracked down soon though or Nov. 1 will be here and I’ll be stumbling in the dark. October is over half over, so I need to come up with something soon. LOL

I’ve been thinking about using a photograph of a road and speculating where it goes and who/what I’ll meet along the way.

Suggestions would be welcome. I think what I could use is a good brainstorming session with someone to bounce ideas off of.

Well, it’s late, and my back is starting to hurt worse, so I’d better go lay down and try to relax it. Pain meds come to mind. LOL

Happy brainstorming, plotting, pantsting and writing. I’ll do my best to update this blog as I go along.

NaNoWriMo 2014 is coming!


I bought a small Blue Tooth keyboard for my Kindle Fire HD 7″ and that makes it easier to type and faster, too. LOL

I’m gearing up for this upcoming NaNoWriMo. It’s already October, so November is right around the corner. All I need to do is set a Muse Trap and see what I catch. LOL

I wish everyone who’s doing NaNo 2014 good luck and may your Muse keep whispering in your ear. :)

Oh! Don’t forget to lock up your IE (Inner Editor) before NaNo starts!

Amy

Wow! I’d Forgotten about this blog!


Well I didn’t do so well last NaNo. :( I think I managed to write a little over one or two thousand words last year.

I now have a Kindle Fire HD 7″ tablet. I absolutely love it! It’s been a lot better than the one I bought last year. I got this one for reading my books. It turned out to be a tablet, which was a surprise. LOL I’m writing this using my Kindle Fire.

I hope to do better than last year. Again I have a few ideas for a plot. We’ll have to wait and see how I do. It couldn’t be much worse than I did last year. LOL

I’m still getting used to this Kindle Fire tablet. I’ve installed an office suite that has a word processor as well as a spreadsheet and presentation software. I also have the tablet linked with my dropbox. So I can work on either my Kindle or my main computer.

Now I have to get some solid story ideas. I’ll try to keep this blog current, which is something I’ve never been able to do. LOL

Well, I think it’s time to post this, so wish me luck with the coming NaNoWriMo. :)
