LAKE PARK, FL (WFLX)-- Perhaps it was that grandmother-to-be instinct that triggered gas station clerk Tammy Camp to save a life.

"It was a surreal situation, I am waiting for my own grandson, so it was unbelievable," said Camp.

Just before 5 a.m. Sunday, surveillance video at the Lake Park Shell gas station located at Northlake Boulevard near I-95 captures a young woman asking Camp for the outside restroom key.

Minutes later, the woman walked out bleeding and holding the unexpected in her jacket.

"The way she was cradling it. She was holding it like a baby and then we realized it was a baby," she said.

Camp quickly walked out and met up with the woman who was in a state of shock.

"She thought the baby died and she laid the baby on the trunk of her car and that's when I took the baby," she said.

The baby was turning blue and was not breathing. Camp rushed back inside with the baby girl while calling 911.

"I took my two fingers and rubbed it's chest and it started to cry again," she said.

Minutes later Fire-Rescue arrived on the scene to take away the baby and mother who was bleeding profusely.

Both are said to be fine at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach as the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office and DCF investigate the matter.

As for Camp, the owner of the gas station Kevin Dalton says: "Tammy is a hero."

She doesn't think so. "No. I am just a mom," she said.
