A heroic Muslim driver came to the rescue of a baby after hearing the scream’s of its mother.
31 year old Mohammed Sakandar who is a taxi driver was out shopping at a Primark store in Manchester, England when he ran to save the life of the baby who ‘wasn’t breathing’ and was ‘pale’.
Mohammed told the Manchester Evening News:
“I heard the mother and grandmother of the baby girl screaming and I just thought, ‘what is going’ on?’.
“They were holding the baby and I could see the girl was really pale and her eyes were open but not moving. I thought she might have died at one point.
“Everyone was in such a panic and shouting and crying but I ran over to them and put the baby on the floor held her nose closed and gave her mouth to mouth. I only did it two or three times but then she started blinking and was breathing again.”
He then put her in the recovery position until the ambulance arrived.
“The family were so so grateful and were thanking me. But I would have done it for anybody. I have three children of my own and you never know when you are going to need someone else’s help.
“It was just instinct to go and help.”
“I think a lot of people shy away from helping because they think they will do something wrong, but I just had to help.
Mohammed says that it’s important for everyone to learn basic first aid:
“I just want to raise awareness of how important it is that people know basic first aid and what to do in this situation.”
This is what a real hero looks like. Well done Mohammed!
