June 12, 2018

Caroline Ivanov didn’t even suspect that a simple visit to friends with her baby daughter could turn into a life-threatening situation.  

A 15-month-old Chloe Ivanov suddenly stopped breathing, so Caroline had to act quickly. She called 911 and then run onto the streets, panicking and clutching her breathless child.

She spotted a police car that stopped at a red light and begged the officers inside for help. Caroline never thought she would watch her only child die in her own arms.

As it turned out, the blue-eyed toddler suffered a seizure. The officers quickly realized the situation was dire and radioed for the closest ambulance, but it was too far away.

The baby wasn’t breathing and had a lot of bubbles coming out of her mouth. The 29-year-old Officer Daniel Newman, a trained emergency medical technician, found that the girl didn’t have a pulse. He started cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which he never performed on a baby before.

He continued trying to save the little girl, whilst the police car sped to the hospital. Suddenly, Chole started breathing again. When they arrived at the hospital, doctors believed Chole’s seizure may have been triggered by a high fever.

The baby felt better and next day she was taken back home. Ivanov said:

She’s getting better, but honestly, I don’t know where we would be without the cops on the street. They did everything they could do, and they really acted as New York’s Finest in that moment.

A similar situation happened in a subway when NYPD officers saved an 11-month-old baby, who stopped breathing.

These situations make us believe that the police officers are really there to protect us and save lives.
