A Massachusetts lineman became a lifesaver this week when he performed chest compressions on a baby who nearly drowned in a bathtub.

Utility worker Tony Depina was driving through the area when he saw a mom holding a baby girl, who was not breathing.

Depina, who is CPR certified, immediately started chest compressions as they waited for emergency responders to arrive.

“I don’t feel like a hero. My worst fear was that baby dying while I was there. So I was determined to do whatever I can to keep her alive,” Depina told WBZ-TV.

The baby girl is expected to be OK.
