CQUniversity Paramedic Science student Alex May had a 'surreal' experience in the back of an ambulance leading to a wonderful feeling a few days later.

The Cairns Post reports that Alex was involved as Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics saved the life of a baby born with the umbilical chord wrapped around his neck.

The baby had been turning blue before the intervention, according to the newspaper .

A few days after the birth the parents announced the baby boy would be named 'Jeremy Alexander' in honour of the ambulance team; hence Alex influenced the second name.

After completing his latest two-week period of practical experience in Cairns, Alex has now returned to his home town of Sydney.

"It was a surreal experience but a wonderful outcome for all concerned," he says.
