Police Officer Saves Baby

A police officer did his job Tuesday when he put down his radar gun and responded to a Bronx apartment Tuesday ­reviving a 2-month-old girl who had stopped breathing as reported in the New York Post:

Castillo, a four-year NYPD veteran and decorated Army Ranger, who was on speeding violations duty on Grand Concourse, giving tickets to drivers who went faster than 25MPH when he heard about the baby over his radio, and he responded.

“The baby was blue, not breathing, unconscious,” Castillo said.

Castillo did four light chest compressions to the infant, who began to breathe on her own again, authorities said.

EMS workers arrived and took Adelyn to Montefiore Medical Center, where she was  in stable condition.
