THE CHILI PEPPERS’ ANTHONY KIEDIS SAVED A BABY’S LIFE WHILE FILMING CARPOOL KARAOKE
While jamming out with James Corden during Carpool Karaoke, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ frontman Anthony Kiedis actually saved a baby’s life.
Kiedis explained the moment to Chris Moyles during a Radio X interview: “We had a glorious dance-off after the wrestle-off, which led to a very interesting, unscripted moment,” Kiedis said. “We were going to celebrate (the dance-off) with some Mexican food around the corner, and a woman came out of her house holding a child, saying ‘My baby, my baby, my baby can’t breathe!'”
So Kiedis, the rest of the Chili Peppers and Corden all ran across the street toward the woman: “The lady thrust the baby into my arms,” Kiedis explains. “The baby was not breathing. I thought, ‘I’m going to try and do a little baby CPR real quick to see if I can get some air into this kid.’ I tried to open the mouth but it was locked shut.”
Kiedis then “started rubbing the belly” of the baby: “…bubbles started coming out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place. The ambulance showed up. I handed the baby over, who was breathing and fine and we went back to Carpool Karaoke.”
