"I immediately jumped into mommy mode when it happened," Hull told ABC News. "It was very scary."
Hull’s husband, Tyler Hull, felt the same way when he came home from work that day and learned what had happened. He cried after he watched the video footage.
"We were both so shocked at how scary it really was," Jennifer Hull said. "It's even scarier when we think of what the outcome could have been."
Hull said that, although she was initially reluctant to share the footage of Hollis choking, she shared it with family and friends on social media in the hopes that it could help other parents. The post has since been shared across the country.
Hull told ABC News that she is glad she and her husband were proactive as they prepared for the births of both of their daughters.
“We sat through every class that our hospital gave. It’s the least that you can do if you’re going to bring a baby into the world,” she said.
