A Bay Area doctor is being hailed a hero after making quite a save at Oracle Park on Saturday.



"Sigh of relief. sigh relief. It's funny as paramedics, as kids cry that's good, that means they have an airway," Tom Schwedhelm with Moraga-Orinda Fire Protection District said.

"I do have kids, I have four. So you know like it's hard not to look at a kid and go, hey it could be my kid," Jarred Neal with Oakland Fire Department said.

CAL FIRE of Butte County posted the video on twitter.

It's getting a lot of comments with one person posting, "That's what super heroes look like to me no cape needed."
