An off-duty police officer from San Pablo, California, came across a mom in distress on the side of the road, and ended up saving her baby’s life.
Officer Gilbert Troche was on the way back from a movie with his wife, when she pointed out a car pulled over and a woman seemingly in distress holding a limp baby.
He took the baby and started doing back thrusts, trying to dislodge anything stuck in its windpipe. After a few tense minutes, the baby was once again breathing.
Officer Troche’s local police, the San Pablo Police Department, posted about the incident on their Facebook page, writing:
Officer Troche’s heroic actions are nothing short of a miracle and we are extremely proud to have him as a member of our Police Department. His quick thinking and decisive action no doubt saved a life.
