The incident reportedly took place Jan. 1, when a couple on the Hereke-Umuttepe bus realized their 10-month-old baby Ömer Asaf was not breathing or moving.
Upon hearing the couple's screams, bus driver Hayrettin Şahin stopped the vehicle and applied emergency response procedures by pulling the baby's tongue and gave him heart massage.
"I had received first aid training offered by Kocaeli Municipality and applied the procedures," Şahin said, adding that the baby started breathing after he gave him a cardiac massage.
Baby Ömer Asaf was taken to a hospital for a health check up and is now in stable condition, reports said.
Kocaeli Mayor İbrahim Karaosmanoğlu congratulated the bus driver for saving the baby's life and awarded him by giving him a bonus for his success.
