Chicago cop rescues baby on Chicago Skyway


A family found themselves in distress on the Chicago Skyway on Saturday.

While commuting, the family observed that their 21-month-old baby was not breathing in the back seat of the vehicle. They pulled over and discovered that the baby was unresponsive.

The father of the baby turned to see a Chicago police vehicle driving in his direction. He immediately flagged the police officer down. The police officer, a 17-year-veteran, assigned to the Traffic Administration Unit, rushed to the family’s vehicle.

The police officer cautiously removed the baby from the vehicle, gently laying him on the pavement, and began to perform CPR. The child’s color returned, he began breathing on his own and he started to cry.

Chicago Fire Department transported the baby to Trinity Hospital in stable condition.
