June 13 (UPI) -- Bill Hogenson, of Ludington, Mich., was working nearby when he overheard two babysitters call 911 about five-month-old infant Nessa Shoup, who had turned blue and stopped breathing, WPBN reported Tuesday.

Hogenson rushed over to the neighboring house and began performing CPR on the suffocating baby. When that didn't work he grabbed the only helpful utensil he could find -- a turkey baster. After a pat on the back, Nessa started breathing again.

Nessa's father said he was "forever grateful" to Hogenson.

“If it weren’t for him, we wouldn’t have this beautiful baby here right now and we are forever grateful,” he said.
