Paterson, NJ (WABC) — A baby boy was rescued by two Paterson police officers Friday afternoon.
Shortly before 1 p.m., a 23-month-old boy started convulsing with a high fever and choked on his own vomit. Then he became unresponsive.
His aunt, who was guarding the toddler at the time, ran outside for help and found two Patterson officers: Medina and Grayson.
Grayson performed CPR on the toddler from the driver’s seat of the police car while Medina reassured the family.
The child spat and began to breathe again. Police officers waited for first responders until they took him to a local hospital.
The boy is expected to make a full recovery.
Officer Grayson has been with the Paterson Police Department for 20 years and Officer Medina has been with the department for 5 years.
