A hero trainee nurse has helped save the life of a toddler after he heard her mother’s screams while on his way to work.
Nicholas Jensen, 44, immediately leapt into action by scooping up the motionless child, who was turning blue, and running through the grounds of Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.
CCTV footage shows Mr Jensen holding the toddler, who was foaming at the mouth, in a recovery position as he sprints to the Emergency Department with the mother following behind.
Once inside he immediately beelines for a resuscitation room where a team of doctors and nurses stream in and begin lifesaving treatment.

The child had an atypical febrile convulsion which can be brought about by viral infection and fever.
She is now doing fine after spending two days in hospital, much to the delight of her mother and hospital staff.
Mr Jensen had previously been a stone mason before switching careers and going into nursing.
‘In the moment adrenalin and my training kicked in,’ he said, though he did admit he was a little shaken later that day.
‘This is why I got into this job, great job satisfaction. It is a meaningful career.’
While Mr Jensen is yet to finish his training his response to the situation has already impressed his colleagues.
