Police revived an unconscious 1-year-old girl after spotting the child's mother begging for help in the Bronx, police said Saturday.
Officers Felix Baez and Giovanni Laguna saw the mother running down 138th St. near Willis Ave. in Mott Haven with her infant daughter in her arms at about 8:30 p.m. Friday.
The panicked mother begged for help, as her unconscious baby started to turn blue. Laguna laid the child on the sidewalk and began CPR as Baez called an ambulance, cops said.
After one minute of CPR, Laguna noticed the baby girl's eyes open and felt a faint pulse, according to officials.
With paramedics still on the way, the officers decided to take the baby and her mother to Lincoln Hospital in their unmarked police car. Laguna continued to perform CPR on the way, cops said.
The baby is breathing again and in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital, according to officials. It is not clear what triggered the girl's ailment.
