Just when I thought I couldn’t appreciate the existence of the Red Hot Chili Peppers any more… this happens.
James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke episode with RHCP Monday night was pretty epic, as you know, but all we saw was what was caught on camera. What happened before, after, or even during? Apparently Anthony Kiedis put on his superhero cape on during his lunch break and literally saved a baby’s life!
According to Consequence Of Sound, he told UK’s Radio X:
“…we were going to celebrate with some Mexican food on the corner. 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 woman thrust the 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.’ Tried to open the mouth, [it was] like locked shut. So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles came out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place, the ambulance showed up and 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 [as] the baby needed help and we were there. The little baby looked at me the entire time until the ambulance came, little baby Nina.”
