On Tuesday morning, November 27, at about 6:30, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents at the San Ysidro border crossing helped save the life of a month-old baby who appeared to be suffering from serious respiratory problems.
According to a press release, a 24-year-old woman from the Mexican side of the border arrived on foot in a vehicle lane asking for help. According to the CBP officer who made contact with the woman, the baby was pale and was not breathing, as if it was choking. The officer called for help and started cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Several other CBP officers who were trained as first responders arrived and assisted with resuscitating the baby.
Shortly thereafter, San Diego Fire and Rescue arrived and transported the baby to a hospital. Later, it was learned that the baby was doing well.
