Youth Good Samaritan: Melissa Garcia..It was another hot afternoon in July of 2010 when Melissa Garcia was babysitting her two younger brothers; Noah, three, and Sam, eighteen months. The boys were in the living room as Melissa prepared an afternoon snack for them. Melissa heard a strange noise and turned to the boys, but saw nothing out of the ordinary. Then she heard the noise again, she walked over to the boys and noticed eighteen month old Sam looked panicked and pale. She then realized he wasn't breathing. Knowing what to do because of her formal Babysitting training and CPR certification, Melissa began giving the boy back blows until the object came out; it was a small piece of thin plastic. The boy instantly resumed to breathing and playing just as he normally would.
