Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has revealed that he helped save a baby’s life while filming an episode of James Corden’s wildly popular “Carpool Karaoke” Late Late Show segment with the band.

Speaking on The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, Kiedis revealed that while he and his bandmates were filming a dance-off for the skit, they were met by a woman with a baby who was struggling to breathe.

“We all ran across the street,” he says. “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, [but 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.’”
