Police Officer Tim Molinet and John Simicich

Two officers from the 113th Precinct helped save a baby’s life over the weekend in Jamaica.

On Saturday, Jan. 13, at around 6 p.m., NY1 reported that Police Officers John Simicich and Tim Molinet were on patrol when they got a call regarding an unconscious child who wasn’t breathing. The officers rushed over to the location, a residential home on Guy Brewer Boulevard.

Upon their arrival, it was reported, they found José and Alexandra Iona, the parents of 11-month-old Joseph. Joseph was still unconscious and his lips were turning blue.

Police said that the officers took Joseph and his parents into the patrol car and rushed them to Jamaica Hospital. On the way there, Officer Simicich began to perform chest compressions on Joseph. Officer Molinet, who was driving the patrol car, called on other officers to block off their route to the hospital.

“It was nerve-wracking,” said Officer Simicich in a press conference. “It hits home for me. I’m not just a police officer, I’m a father, and when we see that, it takes priority.”

Joseph has since been released from the hospital and is doing well.
