Surveillance video from the store shows the 11-month-old’s mother trying to revive the child, as a crowd gathers around her.

Abby Snodgrass pushed through the crowd, according to CNN affiliate KSDK.

She had recently learned CPR in her health class at school, just a few months ago.

“I was terrified. I remember thinking as I’m going the compressions, ‘what if this doesn’t work?’ But I had to put it out of my mind,” Snodgrass said.

Emergency crews responded and were able to take over, getting the child to a hospital where they are recovering.

Snodgrass says she hopes to reconnect with the baby’s family to see how they are doing.
