THE SCORCHING HOT TEMPS--MAKE THE WATER A GOOD PLACE TO BE... THIEME says: "We were trying to have a good day at the beach, and go to the lake and have some fun. It was way too hot to stay at home." ALEXANDRIA THIEME SAYS IT WAS A GREAT DAY...TIL HER 15-MONTH-OLD SON GOT A LITTLE CRANKY ON THE WAY HOME. THIEME says: "At that time is when his temperature started rising and so we stopped at Casey`s so I could get some cold drinks for everybody." A FRIEND STAYED IN THE AIR CONDITIONED CAR WITH BABY XAVIER..WHILE SHE RAN INSIDE. BUT AS SHE WAS CHECKING OUT...HER FRIEND AUSTIN CAME RUNNING INTO THE STORE WITH XAVIER...WHO WAS ACTIVELY HAVING A SEIZURE. THIEME says: "He was shaking and he wouldn`t look at me and he couldn`t talk to me. It was the scariest moment of my life." AS SHE PANICKED--NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO...TWO CASEY'S EMPLOYEES RUSHED TO HELP. JONES says: "It was my mommy instincts. I just pictured, God forbid, it was one of my kids or just any human being, you need to jump in and do what you can when you can." INCREDIBLY--ERICA'S CO-WORKER TAYLOR SWANGURIM HAS A SEIZURE DISORDER..AND TOGETHER, THE TWO WOMEN KNEW *EXACTLY WHAT TO DO TO HELP. THIEME says: "She`s like, 'You need to lay him down on his side.

MOM ALEXANDRIA--HOPES IT'S A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE..AND IS THANKFUL TWO GUARDIAN ANGELS CAME TO HER BABY'S RESCUE--HELPING SAVE HIS LIFE. THIEME says: "Heroic. They were my heroes that day."
