How to Save a Choking Baby
March 22, 2018
Newly released body camera video shows two Ohio cops saving a choking baby. On Tuesday, Officers Alex Oklander and Ryan Sidders were in the town of Shaker Heights when they sprang into action to save the 2-month-old from choking. Sidders turned the infant over and started tapping her back. Then, his partner hit baby Tyra a bit harder to try and get out whatever was caught in her throat. The infant’s mom, Tamica Pruitte, looked terrified, but the tactic worked and the baby started breathing.
