Drama on the expressway: Drivers scramble to save unconscious baby on 836
It was a sight that jarred motorists on the busy Dolphin Expressway.
Westbound traffic suddenly came to a standstill around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, and a woman sprang from her car, holding a baby, screaming for help.
Pamela Rauseo, 37, of West Kendall, quickly got that help for her 5-month-old nephew, little Sebastian de la Cruz, who was turning blue.
Rauseo said she was in a panic, thinking she could not let anything happen to the baby while in her care.
“My sister had trusted me with him,” she told reporters.
Drivers stuck in 836 traffic just east of 57th Avenue swung into action.
