Cape Town - A group of firefighters in Belhar, Cape Town, followed up on their lifesaving heroics with more love for little Bronlyn-Lee Jansen who they rescued from certain death just over two weeks ago.
On June 1, the two-week-old baby's mother Chantel had rushed her to the Belhar fire station, desperate to get help for her infant who had stopped breathing and had started turning blue.
The child had reportedly suffocated on phlegm caused by a chest infection.
The firefighters cleared mucus from her airways, administered oxygen, and after several tense minutes saw the baby starting crying and regaining her natural colour.
"Usually, we don’t have good results on babies. We try our utmost and give our utmost support and expertise to the patient, and this time we were lucky to revive this baby. So there’s a good ending to this story," firefighter Alroy Pieterse said.
