Firefighters Revive Baby

Firefighters with Wichita Falls Fire Station 8 rescued a baby who had stopped breathing Saturday.

The one-month old baby was with family and friends at South Weeks Park on Southwest Parkway, when they noticed something was terribly wrong.

"We were all just sitting around and he just turned blue,s o we all said, 'Run!' and she just ran," said family friend Dionne Flores.

Fortunately, Fire Station 8 is right near where the family was in the park, and the baby was rushed to the station.
 
Firefighters there revived the baby and got his pulse back. The baby was transferred to United Regional and then taken to Cook's Children's Hospital.

Firemen Clay McCarthy and Dustin Carlton also helped in saving the baby. The baby is expected to make a full recovery.
