A baby on a flight from Pittsburgh to Orlando, Florida, stopped breathing and her lips turned purple.
Fortunately, a nurse on the flight was able to provide medical help and started the 3-month-old baby breathing again.

Although it is unclear why the baby stopped breathing, the nurse’s quick action helped save the baby’s life.
Flight attendants also aided in the situation by getting the passengers’ oxygen masks and calling for help.
When the flight landed in Orlando, an emergency medical crew was ready to take the baby to an area hospital.
