Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies are being hailed as heroes for rescuing a 9-month-old boy who was found not breathing during a traffic stop Monday evening in Lakewood.
According to a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Deputy Tyler Milton saw a vehicle driving erratically about 10:20 p.m.
Milton conducted a traffic stop, and when the vehicle pulled over a man quickly got out with a baby who was unresponsive and not breathing, said Deputy Tracy Koerner.
Milton put out a radio call for help and began trying to resuscitate the child, the spokeswoman said. Deputy Alissa Farrington arrived at the scene within seconds and transported Milton and the boy to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.
While en route to the hospital, Milton performed CPR on the baby, who began breathing on his own before they arrived, according to Koerner. The infant was listed in stable condition, ABC7 reports.
