An eight months old baby was saved by a police officer in Australia after he chocked on a piece of food. The incident was captured on the CCTV of the Police Station in Perth on Christmas eve when a baby boy was brought in by his parents after he chocked on his food. Just then an officer was seen rushing to the couple who patted the baby's back as a first-aid procedure. The food came instantly out of the baby's throat in just 30 seconds. The child has been reported to be breathing completely normal after that.
The Western Australia Police later posted the video of the incident on Facebook. In the post, the sequence of events was mentioned in brief. The force also emphasised the importance of first aid for saving a life. Here's the post.

In yet another heroic act by the Police, officers saved a baby that was locked in an apartment in China’s Zhejiang Province. As per reports, the woman called the police after she realized she accidentally locked her baby inside her apartment. The situation was more urgent because she said she realized that she had left the gas on. Thankfully, Police were able to access the apartment from a neighbor’s balcony and recover the baby.
