(Radio.com) Add "life saver" to Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis' resume. While shooting 'Carpool Karaoke' for The Late Late Show, the band experienced a life threatening situation that didn't make its way on air. During a pause in between takes, a mother began screaming that her child couldn't breathe. Without hesitating, Anthony Kiedis rushed over to help.

Speaking with a UK radio station, Kiedis was totally chill about the frightening event. "We danced off, we tied, and then we were going to celebrate with some Mexican food on the corner," he said. "And a woman came out of her house, holding a child, saying, 'My baby, my baby, my baby can't breathe!' We all ran across the street, the lady thrust her baby into my arms, the baby was not breathing, and I thought, 'I'm gonna try and do a little baby CPR real quick, see if I can get some air in this kid.'"

Kiedis said he couldn't open the baby's mouth in order to perform true CPR. "So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles came out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place, the ambulance showed up," he said. "I handed the baby over, who was now breathing and fine, and we went back to 'Carpool Karaoke.' It was kind of a beautiful thing that we stopped for the dance-off. The baby needed help and we were there." Read more here.
