“It was instinct, my training kicked in right away,” said Hensley.

Hensley said after about 30 compressions, Vivienne took a deep breath and started crying.

Vivienne was transported to the hospital and later diagnosed with severe influenza and a double ear infection.

She’s recovered since the incident and is with her family in the Grand Rapids area.
