Cops Revive Unresponsive Infant After Choking

A 15-month-old was brought back to life on his way to Peconic Bay Medical Center.

A pair of Riverhead police officers revived a 15-month child Saturday on their way to the hospital after they found the child unresponsive after choking.

According to Riverhead police, around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, cops received a call from a mother saying that her son was choking on an unknown object.

Melissa Elco, dispatching for police, walked the mom through emergency medical treatment procedures while officers responded to the scene. Officers Kerri Davis and Eric Cohen arrived at the home to find the child unconscious and unresponsive.

The officers transported the infant to Peconic Bay Medical Center, and on the way revived the 15-month-old before arriving. He was evaluated at the hospital for further treatment. Police said further information on the baby's condition was not immediately available.
