A police officer in Warren, Michigan saved an 18-month-old baby’s life who had stopped breathing on Tuesday evening.
As Officer Fraser pulled over a speeding Camaro, the driver shouted for help: “We got a baby in here dying!”
The heroic officer said the baby’s face was blue so he patted the child on the back and was able to get the baby to breathe again. It appears something must have been blocking the child’s airway.
