A grateful mum has tracked down a Tesco manager who saved her "dead" baby – using skills he learned on a first aid course.

Eight-week-old Tommy Warner had stopped breathing and his mother, Charlotte-Louise, was convinced he had died.
But Vishnu, 23, saved the tot by giving him CPR and speaking to ambulance staff by phone as they raced to the scene of the drama in Leicester.
Charlotte-Louise took to social media shortly after the incident on Wednesday to reveal that her son was stable in hospital and appealing to know the identity of the hero who saved his life.
She wrote: "Today at 1:50 pm, my little eight week old was struggling to breath we pulled the car over and I gave him CPR which failed to bring him back.
"He was blue and lifeless, my little boy was dead.
"There was a man who pulled over who also performed CPR on him he got Tommy to start breathing again."
She added: "But, shortly after he deteriorated and stopped breathing once again, he was now blue and lifeless.
"He spoke to the ambulance and carried on performing CPR on my helpless lifeless baby until the ambulance crew got there
"As I rushed in the ambulance, Tommy started breathing again with the help of the ambulance crew and a breathing machine."
Charlotte-Louise said she had been told that mainly as a result of the help of the kind stranger "Tommy wouldn't have made it as he was dead for a few minutes."
"What's happened today has been playing on my mind and I need to thank this man for saving my baby's life. Without him Tommy wouldn't be here.
"Tommy is in intensive care and is doing fine, but please could everyone share this and let the power of the internet to try and track this amazing person down!"
Vishnu, a shift leader at a Tesco in Leicester, had mentioned the incident to colleagues and was told about the post by a friend.
Vishnu responded to the Charlotte-Louise's post, saying: "I'm really happy that Tommy is better because he was all I was thinking at work yesterday. Would love to see him again if it's ok by you and if you need anything please don't hesitate to ask."
Charlotte replied: "I just needed to find you to say thank you for saving my boy's life.
"I'd love for you to see him once he's better, he's on the mend and doing fine in intensive care. They're doing everything they can for him, but he wouldn't even be there if it wasn't for you."

He said: "The next day my colleague told me they were trying to find me to say thank you.
"Never expected this kind of exposure, I'm just happy he's recovering well.
"It was one of them things, you just had to help out. I was sent to a first aid course by Tesco's so that really helped me.
