The parents of baby Kêva, Kevin Bartelmann and partner Alicia Koeries have praised the firefighters that rescued their little girl after she stopped breathing recently, reports Die Burger.
Alicia had put her down to sleep and when she checked on her a while later, Kêva was not breathing. Kevin was at work and after family members tried to help but failed, Alicia rushed her baby to the nearest fire station.
Firefighter Charlene Taylor and her team who were on duty acted quickly and managed to revive Kêva with their emergency training before she was taken to a hospital in Knysna.
Kêva has recovered perfectly, and Kevin told Die Burger that doctors say sometimes this happens to babies, they’re not sure why. The relieved parents said everyone was overjoyed when they heard baby Kêva cry again.
