COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - An Edison State College campus cop is being honored for saving an infant's life.
Sergeant Herbert Hall was writing parking tickets when a car screeched into a parking lot. Hall says the doors of the car flew open and he saw a woman holding an infant. It soon became clear that the mother was trying to fish something out of the baby's mouth.
"A penny actually popped out of the baby's mouth, but [the child] still wasn't breathing and the woman was very distraught, so I reached down, grabbed the baby and did CPR," Sgt. Hall explained.
Sgt. Hall was able to re-start the baby's breathing again and rescue workers were called in to assist. Incredibly, this is the 16th time that Hall has received an award for saving a life.
