California Officer Saves Choking Baby

July 22, 2014  | 

Fresno, Calif., motorcycle officer Roland Rendon was on patrol Saturday night when a radio call for a baby choking in the 1200 block of North Millbrook Avenue was broadcast at 8:27 p.m.

When Rendon arrived, the parents were holding their unconscious 1-year-old on the sidewalk waiting for help, the Fresno police told the Fresno Bee.

Rendon did a finger sweep of the toddler's mouth and could feel an object lodged deep in his throat, the department said. He performed back blows, but the object did not come out. Rendon did a second finger sweep and could tell the object had moved. Two more back blows forced the round piece of hard candy to come flying out. The toddler then began crying and breathing on his own, the department said.
