This Little Girl & Her EMT Dad Are Using ‘Baby Shark’ To Teach Kids CPR

Parents across the globe have suffered many a week listening to the incessant hit “Baby Shark” while their child ‘doo doo doo doo’s for hours on end. Though the song is arguably catchy and brings a smile to your little one’s face, it would be significantly more tolerable if it had some kind of meaningful purpose.

Fortunately, “Baby Shark” is now being used to help kids learn CPR and this EMT dad and his daughter are showing the world just how valuable the song can be in dire situations.

Chris Pietroforte is a former firefighter and EMT of 19 years who now owns a company called Central Valley CPR where he works as a CPR instructor.

Chris recently shared a video of his 2-year-old daughter Saige practicing CPR on a test dummy to the tune of “Baby Shark”.

He captioned the post “If this beautiful 2-year-old can learn CPR/AED, what’s stopping you?”

Chris says Saige has learned a lot by tagging along to his CPR courses.

“She actually goes to all my classes when I teach and she demonstrates how to do it. … So she’s in there and I tell people that if they can’t outdo her, they won’t pass, and that’s actually happened a couple times. I had someone drop out of an EMT class because she outdid him and he was embarrassed and he left because he didn’t wanna be outdone by a 2-year-old,” Chris told InsideEdition.

“I tell people all the time,if a 2-year-old can learn, why can’t you? So there’s no excuse for that,” Chris said.

In the clip, little Saige can be seen giving chest compressions and rescue breaths on her own as well as operating a defibrillator.

“Baby Shark” plays softly in the background to help Saige keep pace.

In the past, “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees has often been the go-to song used by CPR instructors to teach trainees how to time chest compressions. This is because of the tune’s tempo—at least 100 beats per minute—which is recommended by the American Heart Association.

“A good way to teach kids is by letting them pick their own song,” Chris told PopSugar. Pretty much any song that is 100 to 120 beats per minute will work, which is why he chose to use the popular song “Baby Shark” to teach Saige.

The video, which has since gone viral, garnered the attention of millions who applauded the father-daughter duo.

Though some medical professionals weren’t huge fans of the idea.

Regardless, we think it’s a great reminder that everyone can and should learn to perform this lifesaving technique.
