An off-duty Guardia Civil officer saved the life of a 6-month-old baby last Sunday in a park within the Leganés area of Madrid.
It was around 20.00h Sunday evening when officer Christian Ríos was enjoying his day off with some friends in the said park. He suddenly heard cries from a mother to say that her child was not breathing.
Thanks to his training, which includes giving First Aid, he was able to react quickly and decisively by giving the baby a cardiac massage which brought the child round and breathing again.
According to the medical crew who arrived, the pulmonary-cardiac arrest could been a case of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. (SIDS) which used to be known as a “cot death,” because the baby is not suffering from any illness and is in good health.
The Guadix Town Hall has issued an official congratulatory note to the ‘local boy’ for his good deed in saving the life of little Izan, as the baby is called.
