A Buy Buy Baby employee was honored Friday for her heroic efforts in saving a baby's life.
Kathy Falco was given the town of Hempstead's first-ever Hometown Hero award for her quick thinking after an infant stopped breathing in the store last week.
"When the father said here and handed me this baby that was like blue, I said oh my God we gotta move fast," says Falco.
Falco says she instructed someone to call 911 while she started CPR on the baby. She says the baby started crying within seconds.
The retired nurse who works at the store only one night a week says she believes she was meant to be there that day. 
Falco was also awarded the state's Liberty Award, one of the highest honors a civilian New Yorker can receive.
