The quick thinking of two on-duty police officers in Ozone Park helped to save the life of an infant last week.

At 3:20 p.m. on March 11, Police Officers Sardone and Szenczy of the 106th Precinct responded to a 911 call regarding an unconscious baby at a home on 105th Street near 103rd Avenue.

Upon their arrival, they found an unconscious 3-week-old baby with his family, who said that the child had choked on his own vomit.

EMS was dispatched to the scene, but had not arrived by the time that Officers Sardone and Szenczy had arrived at the scene. The officers immediately began to perform CPR on the baby and resuscitated him.

When the ambulance arrived, the infant was taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition. Doctors at the hospital credited the CPR for saving the baby’s life.
