Quick-thinking passengers helped save a baby who stopped breathing aboard a US Airways plane on Tuesday.
Flight 678, en route from Tampa, Fla., to Phoenix was diverted to Houston due to a medical emergency .
Andy Russick, a passenger on board the plane, told NBC affiliate WFLA-TV that a man rushed up from the back of the plane with a baby who wasn't breathing.
"It looked like the baby had a seizure and there was a man in back who must have been a combat paramedic or something who rescued the baby," Russick said. A second man joined the first and performed CPR on the baby, who then let out a wail.
The infant was in stable condition when the flight landed at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport and was taken to a local hospital. The flight then continued on to Phoenix, where it landed shortly before 9 p.m.
