Three Clackamas County deputies huddled around a hospital crib Sunday and smiled at the 2-week-old baby girl hooked up to several machines. They had performed CPR on Audrey Harmon last week for about two minutes. But her parents said their quick action saved her life. The three deputies received a call that Audrey needed help Sept. 30. They raced through the Clackamas Town Center to where Audrey had stopped breathing at the portrait studio in JCPenney, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. Jonathan Zacharkiw, Dan Olson and Jonah Russell found Audrey pale and unresponsive. Her father, Kaylob Harmon, had tried to start infant CPR along with other bystanders. Her mother, Jessie Siefer, had called 911. Both were distraught. While they waited for paramedics to arrive, the three deputies picked up the CPR attempt.
