A Local Hero... Bradenton Restaurant Manager Saves a 2 Year Old's Life with CPR
Chasseedaw Gable and Antonio Johnson, from Bradenton went to grab a bite to eat, after Church this past Sunday (3/21/21)...
They were with their kids, six-year-old Azeena and two-year-old Antonio Johnson and went to the WingStop on 1st St. in Bradenton. Chaseedaw was outside and both Antonio's were inside.
Little Tony is very energetic, he can run fast... Running around, jumping, he is a happy kid," Antonio said of his son. "Right when I was trying to grab him, he slips and hits his head, right on the bench."
Then, Little Tony went limp.
"It was like he didn't have any feeling in his body," said Antonio.
As panic set in, someone was watching over them who knew exactly what to do.
"The daddy grabbed the baby and I jumped the counter," said Jajahira Rosado, the restaurant manager. "He thought he was dead, and me too because he started saying, 'My baby!'"
A cashier called 911 while Rosado put her training as a former hospital worker, to use. She did a sternum rub, a precursor to CPR. Rosado estimates it took three minutes for him…. to come to.
"He opened his eyes and looked at his daddy," said Rosado.
"He started moving again and I was excited about that," said Antonio.
Antonio and Chaseedaw put him in the back of their car and headed for Manatee Memorial Hospital.
Aside from the concussion, he got a clean bill of health and is back to his usual self. As for the grownups, they may never be the same.
"That's the purpose of being here," said Rosado. "We need to help each other."
"For me, the number one thing is people will help you," said Antonio. "They acted like my son…. was theirs."
