"I was doing it for probably about two minutes and like no response, nothing — the pulse was gone,” said Fauonuku, via Deseret News. “I did like another two rounds of chest compressions and then all of a sudden he coughed — his eyes rolled back and the color starting coming back to his face.”
According to the report, that’s when paramedics came. Fauonuku said his mother is a nurse and he’s seen her save multiple people’s life.
“For as long as I can remember, my mom’s been a nurse and I’ve seen her save a couple of people’s lives,” he said. “She taught me how to do all that stuff.”
