(Scroll down for video) A store clerk in Colorado, was hailed a hero after saving a baby from falling out of her mother’s arm.
Jessica Heinonen was at a convenience store buying a soda. She was standing at the checkout counter with her baby, Anabelle, in her arms when she suddenly began feeling faint.
Store clerk Rebecca Montanom realized that the mother was not okay so she grabbed the baby from the Heinonen’s arm. She then tried to hold onto Heinonen as she fell back.
However, she was unable to save the mother as she fell and hit the ground. Heinonen suffered minor bruises. She was rushed to a hospital.
The incident was recorded on the store surveillance camera. Heinonen met with the heroic store employee to thank her for saving her daughter.
The mother said that she is epileptic and has had seizures all her life, but this time was different because it was the first time it happened with her daughter in her arms and without warning, Heinonen said.
Although Montanom is being hailed as a hero, she said that she feels guilty for not being able to keep the mother from falling.
