SASKATOON  – A Saskatoon man who saved the life of a 19-month-old girl in July is being celebrated by the Canadian Red Cross. Aaron Jackson was driving along Arlington Avenue to the grocery store when someone flagged him down. In a nearby driveway, a woman was holding a choking baby.

It had only been a month since his employer required him to take a two-day first aid course with the Canadian Red Cross.

Jackson performed CPR, allowing the girl to breathe again. He stabilized the child and waited for paramedics to arrive.

But he says he’s not a hero.

“Somebody’s crying for help, so you try and help them. I think anybody with training would sort of do the same thing,” Jackson told reporters at an award ceremony Thursday.

His actions earned him the Red Cross Rescuer Award, which “acknowledges the efforts of non-professional rescuers and off-duty first responders who go out of their way to save a life, prevent further injury and/or provide comfort to the injured,” according to the organization’s website.

“I think he’s a hero. Anybody that can stop [and] help somebody else out, is a hero,” said Barry Salmond, first aid program representative with the Canadian Red Cross.

CPR for infants and toddlers consists of a series of hand thrusts between the shoulder blades and on the chest. Anyone can learn the procedure from the Red Cross.
