Plainclothes Cops Rescue 1-Year-Old Baby in the Bronx: NYPD

Two police officers helped a woman save her 1-year-old child Friday night in the Bronx, police said.

NYPD officers Felix Baez and Giovanni Laguna were patrolling the area near 138th street and Willis Avenue in their unmarked police car when they saw a young woman, holding her 1-year-old daughter, running down the street yelling for help in Spanish at around 8:30 p.m., authorities said. 

The officers stopped and identified themselves to the woman when they noticed her daughter turning blue in her arms. Laguna immediately laid the baby on the ground and performed CPR while Baez called for an ambulance, police said.

Once the baby showed signed of life, the officers drove the ailing infant and her mother to Lincoln Hospital, where she was treated, police said. The infant is in stable condition.
