Pulsepoint saves baby's life


News went viral about an Idaho mechanic's dramatic rescue of a baby who had stopped breathing. And it was all thanks to an app he had installed on his cell phone.

Jeff Olson had just downloaded an app called Pulse Point, which is designed to notify people in the area of an emergency. In this case, the app alerted him that there was CPR needed urgently near the tire shop where he works.

The emergency 911 call had come from Empire Dance Shop a few blocks away, where a month-old boy suddenly stopped breathing.

Olson, who is also a volunteer EMT, got there just in time and took over administering life-saving procedures. It would still be several more minutes before authorities could arrive.

The store employee, Lesley Reckord, called it a "blessing" that Olson arrived on the scene.
