A mechanic was working on a car engine ran in 2014 at a repair shop when his phone notified him that a nearby infant needed CPR. See how that baby is doing today.

Today baby Nolan is walking toddler, but in 2014 he was near death before he was saved by a car mechanic registered to use PulsePoint — an app that notifies people when a 911 medical call requiring CPR occurs in proximity of the PulsePoint registered user.

The infant, who was turning blue, is alive today thanks to a mechanic and his smartphone with the PulsePoint app.

Spokane dance store clerk Lesley Reckord heard that a baby was turning blue and called 911.

Reckord, a former lifeguard, put 1-month-old Nolan on the ground and began rescue breathing. Meanwhile, two blocks away, car repairman/master technician Jeff Olson was working on a car when his cell phone went off. He was notified that CPR was needed nearby by the PulsePoint app, which was connected to the 9-1-1 dispatch center for Spokane Fire Department.

“It sounded like an Amber Alert, you know how they come out, and so I looked at it and it said, ‘CPR needed,’ and it gave the address,” Olson said. Olson, who’s a volunteer EMT for Deer Park Ambulance, left the repair shop and rushed to the dance shop.

Olson knew his lifesaving skills were needed because he had registered his phone with the PulsePoint app. While fire paramedics were still several minutes away, the app put Olson in the right place at the right time to keep Nolan alive.

He took over with rescue breathing and CPR and brought Nolan as an infant to the arriving paramedics.

“I don’t think I’ve ever done CPR on an infant before or even rescue breathing, and when I got done I shook for about ten minutes,” Olson said.

The successful resuscitation as the first save since the Spokane Fire Department connected PulsePoint to its 911 dispatch center. The dispatch notifies user in close proximity to a medical emergency requiring CPR in a public place.

No fire departments in Illinois have officially notified the public of any connection to the PulsePoint network, although Naperville Fire Department appears to be testing the program. There is no mention of the PulsePoint program on the official Naperville website, however Naperville has been spotted on the official PulsePoint website.
