Clerk Grabs Baby from Woman Before She Collapses in Store

ARVADA, Colo. (AP) — A convenience store clerk in suburban Denver was talking to a customer and smiling at her baby when she suddenly noticed the mother's face glaze over.

When the woman didn't respond, Rebecca Montano reached across the counter and grabbed one of the baby's arms. She pulled the child into her arms right before the mother slumped backward and fell onto the floor.

Montano handed the baby to another customer so she could call 911 and check to make sure the mother kept breathing during the apparent seizure Sunday.

Montano says the woman returned to the store to thank her Wednesday.

Montano says she believes in "good karma" and hopes that if something like that ever happened to her, somebody would help her, too.
