A South Jersey mother saved her infant’s life with help from 911 operators and the quick actions of police.
The mother, a resident of the Absecon Highlands section, called 911 to report her infant not breathing. The operator remained on the phone while the mother began CPR, according to a post on the Galloway Township Police Department’s Facebook page.
The post said Galloway Township officer Kevin Jorgensen arrived within three minutes and took over CPR, assisted by many other officers. Several EMTs arrived from Galloway Township and Atlanticare Paramedics.
According to police, the infant regained a pulse and was taken to the hospital. The baby was recovering.
“We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and highly trained group of men and women protecting and serving our community each and every day,” Galloway Township Police wrote on their Facebook page. “This is another example of the outstanding teamwork between our Police Department and our EMS professionals.”
