An amazing rescue at a grocery store in Perth Australia is caught on closed circuit cameras. A woman rushes to the checkout counter with her 2 year old daughter- she's stopped breathing. Thinking she's choking, a man in a gray tank top tries to help. He turns her upside down and pats her on the back. By now the girls' father, wearing red, rushes into the store in a panic. The man in gray then clears off the counter, lays the girl down and begins giving her mouth to mouth. Finally- she's breathing. The girls father and the man who saved her share a hug in relief. Local media say the girl had a high fever and passed out. She spent one night in hospital and was released.
