A married couple from North Carolina on Christmas Eve helped rescue people in life-threatening situations at separate locations, CNN reports.

Crystal Travis helped a family escape from a home after their house went up in flames, and husband Roger Travis later performed CPR on a suffocating baby on the side of the road.

"I was the right person at the right time for that person in need," Roger Travis told CNN.

The situation is "not as sensational as everyone says — we just stopped to help when we saw fire," added Crystal Travis.

Crystal Travis and her daughter were driving when they saw flames coming through the roof of a home in Cleveland County. They stopped their car and jumped out to help them get to safety.

"I couldn't really tell at first and then I realized this house is on fire," Crystal Travis told WSOC TV Channel 9. "Then, all of the sudden, the propane tank on the porch explodes. It shakes the ground, and you can just feel it. There's smoke everywhere. It's hard to breathe."

Roger Travis was driving near Hickory Mall when he pulled over after seeing people trying to perform CPR on a baby. He used his EMT skills to revive the child.

"It looked like there was a traffic accident in the front of the mall," Roger Travis said. "We did get a pulse. The child was crying."
