Red Hot Chilli Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has recalled the moment he saved a baby’s life while taking part in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke.

Kiedis, 53, said the group were in the middle of a dance off, the moment they went topless in the skit, when a woman screamed for help.

Describing the moment on UK radio show ‘The Chris Moyles Show’ the musician said ”We danced off, we tied and then we were going to celebrate with some Mexican food on the corner.

“And a woman came out of her house, holding a child saying ‘My baby, my baby, my baby can’t breathe!’

He continued to say ”We all ran across the street, the lady thrust the baby into my arms, the baby was not breathing and I thought ‘I’m gonna try and do a little baby CPR real quick to see if I can get some air in this kid. 

“I tried to open the mouth. [It was] locked shut. So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles started coming out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place. The ambulance showed up and I handed the baby over who was breathing and fine and we went back to shooting Carpool Karaoke.”

He insisted he was not a hero but did tell Moyles that he will be visiting the family to check everything is OK when he returns to America.
