A grateful mother returns to Belhar fire station to thank the team for saving her little girl's life after she'd stopped breathing.

Three weeks ago, a panicked mom rushed into Cape Town's Belhar fire station, begging for help.

Her two-week-old baby had stopped breathing.

Firefighters quickly started clearing mucus from the infant's airways and administered oxygen, getting her breathing again

Usually, we don’t have good results on babies. We try our utmost and give our utmost support and expertise to the patient, and this time we were lucky to revive this baby. So there’s a good ending to this story.

Alroy Pieterse, Firefighter

Two weeks later, Chantel Jansen was back at the station, this time to thank the team for saving her little girl's life.

Watch the emotional reunion below.
