9:02 am
she's alan bayne's only child. early tuesday morning he thought he lost her. panic set in when brooke was struggling for air and stopped breathing. >> the police officer came. >> reporter: corporal luke ringler was just a minute away from the pasadena home. the call from dispatch wasn't good. >> it came out of a death or unresponsive 4-year-old. >> corporal ringler says he was at the right place at the right time, but others, including county executive john leopold says he did something extraordinary, as a father of two young kids, ages 5 and 6, the officer says it was tough to put his emotions aside while performing cpr. >> just try to react appropriately and do what you'd hope anyone would do for their own child in that situation.
9:03 am
she started gagging and gasping. she had that one big breath of air she sucked in and you can see color start coming back to her. >> when every second was crucial, alan bayne said there was another moment to corporal ringler to shine. >> he was listening to the paramedics and noticed the sound was going away from the house and he immediately called dispatch and told them they were going the wrong way. >> brooke's mom and dad are now at her bedside at university of maryland hospital for children. she was transferred out of icu into recovery. >> i'm glad he was there. i owe him a lot. >> life is fragile. you have to love them while you have them. >> sheryl connor reporting. corporal ringler says everyone should take the time to learn cpr. there's a happy ending to this
9:04 am
story, she could be released from the hospital as early as today. i know the corporal said he was just doing his job, but if you're that father or mother, that guys a hero. >> the father was choked up. if anybody is uh, the baby with croup, that's one of the scariest things. good luck to that little 4-year-old, all right? let's look at weather right now. here he is, justin berk. good morning, justin. >> you're not going to like what you're about to see. we've been talking about the potential of building in rain. it comes from the potential of a tropical storm. this one is a unique situation. we could be watching tropical storm nicole form today, over cuba. tropical storm watches and warnings, basically from the keys up through southern florida counties. that could reach maryland and the chesapeake bay by thursday evening and thursday night. for us, that means the possibility of flooding range between 2 to 4 inches.
9:05 am
on top of what we just had. there may be spots with higher amounts depending on where the rain bands set off. clouds trying to thicken up. we still do have a partly sunny sky across the area. 64 here in baltimore. imagine that mark in easton. mid- to upper 60s in southern maryland, cooler 50s to our northwest. as for the moisture, rain reaching southern maryland. perhaps a few sprinkles in caroline county. rain towards richmond and norfolk and further south. we'll be right along this boundary here. and the focal point of tapping into all this tropical moisture which extends through the carolinas, through florida. we've been watching the potential for tropical development here through southern florida today which would be nicole on the list. this is the pool of cool air that will spill in over the weekend. it helps to increase the flow. that'll take that storm and bring it here on top of us by tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow
9:06 am
night. our forecast model really highlights this heavy rain in orange and red. you'll see that building in, not so much today with showers, but tomorrow morning by daybreak, we'll have heavy rain. there'll be spots of heavier rain embedded in the widespread rain shield across the chesapeake bay, central maryland and back towards the mountains. this will push itself towards the east. we'll get that dry line pushing towards baltimore. heavy rain may linger around the chesapeake bay, east of ocean city by friday morning. because of the wind flow, not so much the storm itself generating more than 40, 45 mile-per-hour winds, but the surge itself may come off the bay. we have the possibility of high tide floodings and in baltimore at fort mchenry, 11:57 tomorrow, just before the noon hour, we'll watch it again just after midnight, 12:44 on friday morning. we have ourselves thickening clouds today. holding our temperatures into
9:07 am
the lower 70s. chance of showers will come during the afternoon. a lot of us will have some form of showers by this evening and tonight. heavier rains build by daybreak. the potential of that flooding. more on the extended forecast coming up. we have "dancing with the stars" here on abc2. harford county has dancing for the arts. >> coming up next: what celebrities will be hitting the dance floor for your votes to help raise money for the arts? >> we continue to think pink all week long. we have tips for you on how you can help a friend or loved one diagnosed with breast cancer. >> we continue to help you with your resume. tips to make sure your resume is online for any publications you have to fill out.

9:12 am
tough battle to fight alone. but when you have support from family and friends, it can make a big difference. >> a lot of breast cancer survivors and people going through treatment want to be as independent as they can be and so it's often difficult to ask for help. so simply being present and say "i'm here to help you" there'll be times when you're fatigued, whatever you need, let me know. >> susan appling helps breast cancer patients. just being there to help with everyday chores around the house is one way to help. second, relaxation and exercise can go a long way. >> fatigue is a big problem. one of the best ways to help your friends to fight fatigue is to plan times that are relaxing so you can help her with that and to plan times to exercise. we don't mean going to the gym exercise, but just getting out the 15, 20, 30 minutes to walk. >> third, offer emotional

all right, it's time to get you back to work. for those looking for work, you found us on good morning maryland at 9:00, we're working for you. we've asked you to submit your resume to us and then we feature those looking for work online and right here on wednesdays. here's wednesday and here's a look at this week's job hunters. >> hello, i'm mark and have a solid background in it. i've worked for major corporations and non-profits. i've been involved in hiring and training of new employees and various software and internet services. i'm looking for positions as network administrator. if you're looking for a team player, contact me at the address on the screen. >> my name is eleanor. i have a degree in interior design and sophisticate in business. personal assistant in the

9:29 am
first thing you should do is save the text, what do you mean by that? >> many people, this job search is the first time they search for a job online, they go to the sites and they're posting their resume as requested and then they'll come across a site where it says "do you want to view the document?" the formatting's all taken out or it's changed quite a bit. most of the job sites will convert your text, what you want to do is save a version of your resume as a text document. whatever you're posting on a job board or applying online, cutting and pasting into an application, use that because you've already accounted for the changes, clean it up as nicely as possible. look at the right column, conversion in text, it will break it right in the middle of a word and move it down. that can be a typo. make sure, it's not going to
9:30 am
look at nice as a word document, but it'll be more presentable. you can see how much you can improve when you make the text conversion to text. >> don't employers sort of know that if you're e-mailing it anyway, it's not going to look at nice as a word document? >> nothing that's easier to read is going to connect better with them. >> speaking of reading, you said keywords, that's another thing. >> job boards now, there's such competition, okay, it's wednesday, a job that got posted monday, most people probably have 700 resumes in a data bank. the way they'll narrow the list down is do keyword searches. you have to make sure in your resume you have the keywords that they would likely be searching with. so, first thing to look at is the requirements for the job. that'll be that say, top secret polysecurity clearance. have that in your resume the
9:31 am
exact wording they have. look at the announcement you're responding to. keep a look at all the typical jobs you might respond to. what are the buzz words you see often. outline any software you know, specifically, i get, accounting and planning recruiters. there's a ton of accounting software packages out there. some people put on their resume, familiar with numerous accounting packages. list them. if you don't have word, excel or access spelled out, your resume won't get seen. >> you said update or refresh things quite often. >> well, um, recruiters, if a recruiter searching a database on wednesday knows the last time they searched was sunday, rather than seeing the resumes again, they're going to program their search to only share the new as of what sundays day was.
9:32 am
so basically, each day you have one posts on there, each place you do. once, or every few days, go back and make an adjustment or two. maybe change and a to a the somewhere. >> we ran out of time but you said get a linked in profile and google yourself. >> anybody looking to hire is going to google you, see what's there and linkedin allows more employers to search for you in a less competitive environment if they're not looking to, people don't understand. employers don't want to get, have to scroll through several hundred resumes. they want a method of searching that can bring people to them easier. >> great, tom where can people find your book or get in touch with you? >> amazon, >> jamie? >> when's the last time you
9:33 am
googled yourself. uh, forget it. dave's here from wegmans. we're talking apples with the arrival of fall. coming up, dave will have the best of the best. cooking for free. plus: it's time for a pop quiz. how well do you know your own religion or the religions of the world? another star is cast off the dancing floor, but what did michael bolton say about one of the judges before he left? how about the heavy rain? it looks closer than it really is on this particular advantage point. we wanted to show you the heavy rain in the carolinas spreading our way. it's just barely clipping st. mary's county. plan for wet weather to roll in. flooding rains tomorrow. we'll talk about that and more good morning maryland right after this.
