Anthony Kiedis Reveals He Saved A Child’s Life During ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Shoot

Anthony Kiedis and his fellow Red Hot Chili Peppers brought viewers some big laughs when they sang along to their hits with James Corden in a recent edition of “Carpool Karaoke” on “The Late Late Show”, but in a subsequent radio interview the Chili Peppers front man reveals a terrifying event that took place while filming that was nothing to laugh about.

“We also had a dance-off, which they didn’t include, but after the wrestle-off we had a dance-off, which led to a very interesting, unscripted moment,” Kiedis revealed in an interview with Chris Moyles’ Radio X show.

“We danced off, we tied and then 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 that we stopped for the dance off, [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.”
