GREAT JOB! Chicago Police officer rescues baby with CPR on Skyway

A Chicago Police officer who performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a 21-month-old who had stopped breathing is being lauded for helping out on the Skyway this afternoon.

The baby was in the backseat of a vehicle traveling on the Skyway near 89th Street at 12:24 p.m. when family members saw the child was not breathing, according to a police News Affairs statement.

They stopped the vehicle and found the baby unresponsive, but the child's father turned to see a Chicago Police vehicle driving in his direction and flagged down the 17-year veteran officer, the statement said.

The police officer cautiously removed the baby from the vehicle, gently laying him on the pavement, and began to perform CPR, the statement said.

The child’s color returned, he began breathing on his own, and then started to cry, the statement said.

Chicago Fire Department paramedics took the baby to Advocate Trinity Hospital in “stable” condition, the statement said.

Police said the officer was not available for an interview immediately.

Antique Officer' s congratulations said...

That's what we do too. Save lives and risk ours to get there.


PRINT THAT YOU BASTARDS! WHERE'S THAT ON THE NEWS? BAD COP= FRONT PAGE MIRACLE COP = PAGE 37. Good cop= NOWHERE!


God bless you office and share that life you saved as. a friend school and after. it will get you through the daily crap and the child will always be or friend.

Being the hypocrite I am I still have more than a dozen on my Christmas and birthday list I only met once a long time ago but each time I see or talk or read from them there are tears and laughs and roll calls. The Company don't care and the should; both are special people and should be remembered.


I feel happy for you but jealous of your happiness and pride. Keep up the honor and privilege and forget the small shit.
