It was supposed to be an ordinary flight to a tropical destination.

"All of the sudden from the back of the plane, I heard just screams and then people came over the intercom just saying, ‘Is there a doctor, a nurse?’" said Rosemary Smith.

Smith is a nurse. The D.C. resident and a fellow passenger, who teaches CPR, rushed to help a six-month-old baby girl named Jasmine. The baby was unresponsive. They revived her repeatedly.

Instead of heading from D.C. to Puerto Rico, the plane made an emergency landing in North Carolina.

JetBlue told the first responders the baby was released from the hospital a few days later and is back home in Puerto Rico.

Smith is eager to hear news about how the child is doing and hoping it will motivate others to learn CPR.
