Hero of the Week: Becky Arbaugh

Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.

This week, we highlight a story in Pennsylvania where a mom was in the drive through of a Taco Bell when her 11-month-old baby in the backseat stopped breathing. Natasha Long jumped out and pulled her baby boy, Myles, from his car seat. She yelled, “Call 911… my baby’s not breathing!”

As she watched her baby turn blue, Natasha felt like she was blacking out. The Taco Bell manager, Becky Arbaugh, came running out of the restaurant and started CPR. After performing chest compressions on Myles, Becky could see him start breathing again. Little Myles was taken to the hospital and he’s doing great.

Natasha calls Becky her guardian angel and says she will forever be known to Myles as his “Aunt Becky.” As for Becky, she says she’s not a hero, she is just a mom helping another mom.
