Video Captures The Moment Sheriff’s Deputy Saves Baby Who Stopped Breathing During Protest In California

By

Dramatic security footage captured the moment a Palmdale Sheriff’s Station deputy sprang into action to help save a choking baby.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department shared a two-minute video on social media of Deputy Cameron Kinsey rushing to help a mother whose 11-month-old son was in “physical distress,” according to officials. The incident occurred May 31 near a protest at a park in Palmdale, California.

In the video, a visibly frantic woman carries a child in her arms and rushes across a supermarket parking lot, appearing to tap the child on the back as another woman flags down help.

The child and his mother were attending a rally across the street when the boy stopped breathing and lost consciousness, according to authorities. The pair ran to the supermarket, where deputies had been stationed to monitor the protest.

A uniformed deputy, identified as Kinsey, can be seen in the video rushing toward the baby boy before taking him into his arms.

Officials said Kinsey “immediately recognized something was gravely wrong” and “administered a mouth sweep with his finger and dislodged vomit.”…(Read more)
