He handed the infant to Lewis, who clambered down a ladder while giving the flopping and lifeless baby mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Lewis handed the baby to Kerr, now a fire lieutenant who was performing her first pediatric rescue that very day.
Situations such as the one that played out that day at 29 E. Hebble St. “mark your soul,” Kerr said in the video. “You don’t want to fail the most frail in your society.”
Lewis, who is now fire chief in Gresham, Ore., said, “she was lifeless. I know I had to get every breath I can into her.”
The coolest moment of the video occurs when McGraw, a longtime supporter of first responders and the efforts they make every day, reunites a now 11-year-old Chelsea with Fairborn Fire Chief Mike Riley and Kerr.
Duracell is working with various local and national fire, EMT and law enforcement agencies to distribute 1 million Duracell Quantum batteries to the responders.
The company described the campaign as “reflecting the brand and character quite well,” noting that in its talks with first responders, firefighters and EMTs, Duracell copper top batteries were the most frequently used brand.
The series of spots will run on Duracell’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pages. Viewers are encouraged to share their own stories using the hashtag #MyQuantumHero. National ad spots highlighting the new batteries and the campaign will also air.
You can catch the video at youtube.com/duracell. The title of the video is "Quantum Heroes: Baby Rescue."
