Unbelievable images were captured by Miami Herald photographer, Al Diaz, on the side of the Dolphin Expressway in Miami Thursday.

Diaz said this woman got out of her car and was screaming her baby (her nephew) couldn't breathe. Diaz said he ran into traffic looking for someone who knew  CPR, and that's when Lucilla Godoy emerged from her car.

Godoy, gave the five-month-old mouth-to-mouth.  She was able to resuscitate Sebastian but moments later he stopped breathing. Godoy and a police officer worked together with CPR and chest pumps.  

"The hero is Lucilla and the baby's aunt, Pamela Rauseo" said Diaz.

Godoy declined the praise saying "I'm not a hero, I just did what you would have done, I'm sure, if you were there and you see what I saw. You would have stopped I'm sure."

The boy, had turned blue, and stopped breathing. He was transported to an area hospital and at last check was in stable condition.

The baby was reportedly born premature and had respiratory issues.
