NYPD Officers Save Unresponsive Baby in Patrol Car

The belch of a 15-month-old baby girl who had stopped breathing brought tears of joy to a couple of NYPD officers Saturday.
Officers Michael Konatsotis and David Roussine revived the baby Saturday after her panicked parents called 911 when she turned blue.
The officers said it took them 45 seconds to rush to the midtown Manhattan apartment where they found the unresponsive girl. Konatsotis sat up front with her, delivering emergency breaths while Roussine made the 10-block trip to Weill Cornell Medical Center in less than a minute-and-a-half.
When they arrived, Konatsotis said the baby let out a big burp, color returned to her face and she started crying. He said the officers did too.
The baby is in stable condition. Her name wasn't released.
