A police officer has gone above and beyond the call of duty by breastfeeding an abandoned baby to help save the newborn's life, reports blog Essential Baby.

Luisa Fernanda Urrea, who is a police officer in La Marina, Colombia, was called to a forest settlement where locals had discovered a baby on the ground alone.

While waiting for medical assistance, the new mother breastfed the hours-old baby, recognizing that she was in need of hydration.

Urrea told the local media, "I'm a new mother and I have milk and I recognized the needs that this poor little creature had."

Police are searching for the mother, and the baby is being cared for by the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare, which is searching for an adoptive home.
