NORFOLK, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A baby nearly drowned in a tub in Norfolk Wednesday, but a good Samaritan saved her before it was too late.

In the 911 call obtained by FOX25, you can hear the baby's mother crying for help as another family member speaks with Veteran Norfolk Dispatcher Joe Castellano.

"Initially, the party on the phone was not the mother, she was passing information a long that the baby wasn't breathing," he said.

As the mother waited outside near the street for the ambulance, two linemen from a local power company just happened to pass by.

FOX25 spoke with Eversource employee Tony Depina in West Roxbury. He is trained yearly in CPR and he performed compressions on the baby.

"Shortly after I started the baby coughed up a little bit of water," he said. "I tilted her sideways, until the EMT's showed up."

Speaking off camera, only to FOX25, the baby's grandmother says she wants to personally thank Depina, a lineman and lifesaver.

The baby remained in the hospital Wednesday night.
