NEW YORK (AP) — A New York woman whose infant son stopped breathing was able to revive him thanks to a police officer's calm instructions on the phone.
Suffern Officer Tim Dunn says the woman was scared and nervous when she called 911 Monday afternoon.
The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1kESpCU ) says Dunn reassured her and instructed her to check the baby's chest. He continued to give her directions, telling her to turn him on his side and try clearing his airway with her finger or a tissue.
Within minutes, he says the baby gurgled and then began to cry.
Dunn says he was beyond relieved.
He says he's been in similar situations during his 30-year law enforcement career.
He's retired from the Spring Valley police department and now works part-time in Suffern.
