TAFT, Calif. - A Taft High School senior became a hero after saving an infant while on a Disneyland field trip with her school's choir.
The choir had performed in front of judges and were spending the day in the amusement park, when a mother made a desperate call for help.
According to the Taft lifeguard, Sara Jewell, she was in line for the Dumbo ride with other choir members, when a mom screamed out for first aid.
Jewell said she jumped a fence and informed the mom she was a lifeguard. Jewell then performed CPR with the help of a nurse, when spaghetti was coughed up by the one-year-old.
The lifeguard said it was the first time she ever had to use the CPR training.
According to Jewell, a Disney official followed her and gave her three fast passes to speed through lines the rest of the day.
