In a radio interview, the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis relates a surprising story from the day the group spent filming Carpool Karaoke with James Corden for his Late Late Show.
Kiedis says they had just finished having a dance-off on the street when a woman came out of a nearby house with a child in her arms, saying her baby couldn’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,” Kiedis told radio host Chris Moyles on Radio X. “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.” Kiedis also said the baby’s name was Nina.
“When you’re a dad, and someone says, ‘My baby!’ you jog across the street,” he said.
Kiedis has a child himself, an eight-year-old son named Everly Bear. And although the life-saving action happened off-camera, there’s plenty in the Carpool Karaoke segment to keep you entertained.
