A quick-thinking convenience store clerk snatched a baby out of the arms of a woman who suffered a seizure and collapsed to the floor.

Rebecca Montano, of Colorado, said she was playing with the 3-month-old baby while ringing up a soda transaction for the customer.

"I wanted to make the baby smile because I love babies, I am a mom and grandma," she told Inside Edition. "I look at the mom and she has a blank stare and something in me said something wasn’t right."

Store surveillance footage shows Montana leaping into action to snatch the infant out of the mother's arms just as the woman crumpled to the floor.

"She started to sway so I grabbed the baby’s arms," Montano said. "[The mother] was lost in space. I said, 'I gotta take this baby' and took the baby out of her arms. When I did that she started to fall."

Another customer rushed over to tend to the woman while the store clerk called 911.

Montano and the woman was reunited on Wednesday.

"She came back yesterday afternoon... to tell me thank you for saving her baby," she said.

Montano said the woman, who is in her 20's, told her she'd suffered from seizures since she was a child.

"It was scary, it upset me terribly," she said. "Every time I watch the clip I shake because I don’t like it. It brings tears to my eyes.

"Now I feel better because I know the girl is OK."

  • Lovezoe

    The dude put his stuff on the counter all neatly. I am like DUDE, a lady passed out. Glad she's okay.

  • AG

    Yeah, I have two friends that have seizures. Very scary and can happen at any moment.

  • WetPntees

    Amen!! A great deed INDEED!!

  • iWasteTime

    Good bless everyone involved!
    It could have been super bad if that baby took that fall with her momma!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    God bless that the lady wasnt somewhere else at that moment.

    Sister in law has seizures. Had one in my presence way back in 1993. Scariest mess EVER. We were both teens. I had no clue what to do.

  • felinelurker

    I have a friend that has them & she was a dental technician. She actually had one while with a patient. She of course had to quit & currently is on disability.

  • felinelurker

    Feline13 had one while at daycare when she was 3. Scared the crap out of the teachers bc afterwards, she wasn't breathing. I had to meet them at the ER. REAL scary

  • Mel

    God bless them watching this brings tears to my eyes

  • Auditor

    All too familiar as I have them thanks to a medication I was on. I had one at work at an old job and was pretty much shunned after that. I don't tell folks I have them unless I have to because discrimination usually comes right after. My mom be scared for me going places and doing things but can't let that dictate your life. I do know my limitations as I'll never be able to ride the amusement park rides again. Haven't had one since 2013 knock on wood!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Yes! Glad everything turned out ok. My goodness.

  • felinelurker

    Wow, glad you're able to cope/live your life. Are you saying a medication caused them or you're able to cope bc of the medication?

  • Auditor

    A medication caused them...swear that was like the ONLY medicine I never looked up in my life to see the side effects. I was going through a rough time in my life and they put me on Zoloft (anti-anxiety med). I refuse to take anti-seizure medicines as I don't have them that often plus the medicine they tried to put me the side effect is DEATH. So um no...

    Funny thing is only ONE doctor out of all the ones I've seen and trust I've been to MANY admitted that that medicine can cause seizures. It's their bread and butter and they push the sh*t like candy instead of getting folks therapy and finding the root cause.

    Now I stay the hell away from drs and do natural remedies if I can. That Zoloft messed my whole body up. I'm highly sensitive to EVERYTHING now.

  • Lovezoe

    Praise God it's been 3 years!

  • Auditor

    Amen...Yea sad thing is you can go 10 years without having one and BOOM there it is. I know my trigger is lack of sleep so I make sure I get PLENTY.

  • Layla Leone

    And the baby looked really cute

  • Auditor

    Well damn...the man coulda caught the women before she hit the floor. Guess that coke was more important...

  • WetPntees

    They are addictive!! I can sure go for an iced cold pop myself right ni with some cheese doodles in the blue bag..

  • Auditor

    Lol I gave up soda years ago...I drink it once in a blue moon...not coke though usually Dr Pepper or Sprite. Saves you money when you go out too. They be mad lol.

  • nucynu25

    Awww, I luv seeing the good in humanity .. That's just really scary what if she was driving or something ..

  • Jusstlookn

    Seizure, or heroin nod. She cold slight fainted. Glad baby is safe. Hope mom finds better meds...she shoulsnt be driving. Lawd

  • felinelurker

    "the medicine they tried to put me the side effect is DEATH." - that would be a no! LOL

    I have migraines & tension headaches. My previous neurologist prescribed some daily, preventive medication that if I stopped, once started, would cause seizures. Regular pharmacy doesn't even carry it anymore. I had to go to a compounding pharmacy to get it. So it was migraines or seizures. Take your pick. Needless to say, I trashed them!

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Thank God for a store clerk with a great attitude. A different kind of clerk, the usual kind, and that baby would have hit the ground as well. Seizure disorders are scary, I have a friend that has adult onset epilepsy, it has completely changed her life. She had her first seizure while driving and really is lucky to be alive. She's been seizure free for 13 months now, was seizure free for 2 years before the last one.

  • Lovezoe


  • Auditor

    Hmm yea I think I'd take seizures (assuming you have them once in a blue moon like me lol). I had a migraine last month and it was horrible. I went to bed with it and woke up with it. Thought I was hemorrhaging or something. You can't function.

    I know I've read it could be your allergic to something. I knew someone where gluten was the trigger. I've heard the nightshades, wheat, dairy. Folks are just messed up nowadays...

  • TheWildChild

    See! ?and then runs away ?? was his cellphone dead ?

  • felinelurker

    The tension headaches are weekly, sometimes consecutive days and I've just learned to deal. But the migraines are rare & they shut me down, completely!

  • Auditor

    Yup tension headaches ain't a joke either. I get them when my posture is jacked up for long periods of time.

  • Django the God

    She was buying that dirty Sprite.

  • Lisa Daniels

    Glad she wasn't driving at the time.

  • SoChlo

    My husband has epilepsy and my (and his) worst fear was having a seizure while holding the baby especially in the beginning with the sleepless nights. Luckily he has been 2 years seizure free?.

  • Carmen Jones

    Glad she was there and not on the road. So happy the clerk and young man were there to help.

  • AG

    Oh hell nah!

  • SpiceGirl

  • Pettyville123

    *tears as I watched this video*... A mothers instinct.. I can't imagine suffering with such conditions and having kids..... It must be scary knowing you can be alone at times with and have an attack. God bless them!

  • Yoni

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Bless them all Jesus. Idk why but this brought tears to my eyes!

  • Meme81

    The clerk was the hero but the man who ran up could've thrown that Powerade on the ground and tended to the woman. Left her right there seizing and whatnot.

  • Meme81

    That's exactly what I thought. And he made sure to carefully place all his items on the counter-dude, please never become an EMT.

  • Meme81

    -_- U are so not right for this, lol

  • 80sChild

    I was thinking the same!

  • The Mrs.

    I am glad this was captured on video. I am also glad that the woman who had the seizure was some place where her baby was able to be helped.

  • Xsjado

    Glad the clerk recognized this woman's situation. Glad everyone is ok.


    Yes there is hope, I’m just glad to see that there are still some good Samaritans out there.

  • Born Winner

    Of course an aint shit man was of no help while the woman did everything.
