It was humanity acting in tandem, something which is very rarely seen.
Last week, police, medical personnel and even firefighters joined hands in Toronto, Canada for one selfless, compassionate act: saving the life of a four-month-old baby.
According to a report on the website of a popular Canadian newspaper, on November 18, a couple rang the emergency telephone number 911 after noticing that their four-month-old boy had turned blue and was not breathing. He appeared to have little or no chance of survival.
The father promptly started asking passersby to help, but he did not have to wait for long, as police constable Ivan Yeung arrived on the scene and took control, chop-chop.
On the sidewalk, he applied CPR on the baby, with just a finger, gently pressing on the chest. Eventually, the baby started to show signs of movement.
His partner, in the meantime, feverishly started directing traffic, organised fire tenders, ran to a paediatric hospital and lent a hand to Yeung.
This was not the first time, the report said, that Yeung had saved a life. In August, he dove into Lake Ontario and rescued a woman who was drowning.
Toronto firefighters arrived on the scene rightaway. They were equipped with a defibrillator and an oxygen machine. They helped the boy breathe normally.
From there paramedics took over, tending to the boy in an ambulance before rushing him to hospital.
It was more than a twinge of responsive sympathy. It was a flood.
It was a cracker of a rescue act that was like a quintessential soothing balm, which conveyed the message that rays of goodness still spread a lot of warmth in this vile, vile world.
