Janay Flowers and her 11-month-old daughter, Neveah, were flying home to Dallas when Nevaeh fell ill just 10 minutes before they were scheduled to land.

On April 25, both Flowers and Neveah were sitting on a flight preparing for their landing when Nevaeh woke up and began convulsing.

I would like to thank all of the passengers and flight crew who assisted my baby girl and I aboard #AmericanAirlines Flight 607 from Tampa to DFW on April 25, 2019. Nevaeh is doing well now, but on that flight the scariest moment of my life unfolded before my eyes. My precious baby girl had a febrile seizure when we were about 10 minutes out from landing in Dallas. I was traveling alone with Nevaeh and did not have a clue what to do but cry out for help. Two people immediately came to aid my baby and found that she was burning up. They took her onesie off and she was running a serious fever, her toes were blue, and she could barely breath. They called out for any doctors on the plane and about 3-4 additional people came running to help also. God had His hands on us. All of these people worked diligently to cool my baby down while she was having a seizure. One man went to the front of the plane to ensure that the EMS was at the gate as soon as we landed. Another man got an oxygen tank and administered it to Nevaeh. Another man was taking her pulse. As soon as our plane landed, we all rushed to the front of the plane while they grabbed all of my belongings. One man carried my baby, one man kept thumping her foot to make her cry, I sang you are my sunshine and prayed like I never prayed before. It seemed to last forever. As soon as the plane doors opened, the paramedics were there and transported us to the EMS and rushed us to the ER of Baylor Medical Center – Grapevine. Those nurses and doctors took great care of my baby and made her better. My family and I are beyond grateful for all of the care and treatment given to our baby. I am so thankful to God that He put the right people in the right place at the right time! God kept us and worked through those angels who cared for Nevaeh. If you can, please tag @americanair in the comments, because I would love for them to share my gratitude with the angels who assisted us and let them know she’s well!

Flowers believes that “God had His hands” on them and thanked all the people who “worked diligently to cool my baby down while she was having a seizure.”

She explained just how many people helped them that day:

One man went to the front of the plane to ensure that the EMS was at the gate as soon as we landed. Another man got an oxygen tank and administered it to Nevaeh. Another man was taking her pulse. As soon as our plane landed, we all rushed to the front of the plane while they grabbed all of my belongings. One man carried my baby, one man kept thumping her foot to make her cry, I sang you are my sunshine and prayed like I never prayed before. It seemed to last forever.

And just as was promised, when the plane doors opened, paramedics were there waiting.

Flowers and Nevaeh were immediately transported to the nearest emergency room, where a “great” team of nurses and doctors aided the 11-month-old back to health.

In a separate post, Flowers revealed that they were finally able to reunite with the two people who initially rushed to their aid when they needed help on the plane.

You know those two angels I said came to Nevaeh’s aid as soon as I cried out for help? We got connected yesterday! This is so overwhelming. This is Tiffany and Alvin! They saw our story on Fox news, looked me up on Facebook, and added me! I gave them a call and we even FaceTimed with our families. It was amazing to speak to the woman that saved my baby’s life. Turns out, Tiffany is a Nurse! She told me things that I didn’t know about this situation that happened with Nevaeh on the plane. She told me that Nevaeh stopped breathing on that plane and she was about to start doing CPR. Tiffany turned Nevaeh to her side and pulled her tongue out of her throat to clear her airway. She didn’t want to freak me out more, so she didn’t say it while it was happening. She told me that Nevaeh was not in good shape at all and it didn’t look like she would make it 😱 But she did everything she could to keep her! Words cannot describe how thankful we are. They saved our baby’s life. Thank you everyone for helping us get connected. They are even making plans to attend Nevaeh’s first birthday party next month! Praise God!

As Flowers explained, Tiffany, who is a nurse, and Alvin “saw our story on Fox news, looked me up on Facebook, and added me”:

“I gave them a call and we even FaceTimed with our families.”

According to Yahoo News, the couple was on that plane after attending a medical convention in Tampa. Alvin is a chiropractor.

Tiffany told Yahoo that, at the time, she wasn’t sure if Nevaeh was going to make it:

“Nevaeh’s tongue was rolled back and blocked her airway, so I reached inside her mouth and swept the area with my finger. I thought she was going to die in my arms.”

Thankfully, their efforts were enough.

Flowers concluded that “they saved our baby’s life,” and the pair is expected to attend the baby girl’s first birthday party next month.
