The sheriff's deputy who helped a desperate mother after her baby stopped breathing in Florida is speaking out. On Friday, Shakira Nelson ran into the Tax Collector's Office in Tampa with her lifeless son when Deputy Steve Donaldson sprang into action. Lucky for the 15-month-old-boy named CJ, Deputy Donaldson, had just completed a refresher class in infant CPR. He checked for vital signs and, then, with great trepidation, began chest compressions. CJ is healthy and fully recovered.
