Saving a life

A pair of Lakewood sheriff’s deputies are being credited with saving a baby who was found unresponsive and not breathing during a traffic stop in Bellflower Monday night. The incident began about 10:20 p.m. when a deputy observed a car driving erratically on Lakewood Boulevard near the 91 Freeway, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.The deputy got the vehicle to pull over and the driver quickly exited holding a 9-month-old baby boy, the Sheriff’s Department stated. Deputy Tyler Milton realized the baby was unresponsive and not breathing so he quickly called for assistance at the scene, Sheriff’s Department Capt. Richard Harpham said during a news conference Tuesday morning. Deputy Alyssa Farrington arrived a short time later and drove Milton, the baby and the baby’s mother to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Harpham said Milton performed CPR on the baby as they were headed to the hospital, and the boy started breathing again, Harpham said. The baby was listed in stable condition at the hospital and expected to be OK!
