YORKTOWN, N.Y. Two Metropolitan Transportation Authority police officers saved the life of a 1-month-old infant who was choking on a train early Sunday at the Croton Harmon train station.
Aiesha Davidson and her daughter, Serenity Green, were changing trains at Croton en route from Beacon to Manhattan shortly after midnight when the infant, who was sleeping soundly, suddenly started making wheezing noises and was frothing at the mouth.
Officers Kieran Killilea and Paul Carufe quickly cleared the infant's airway, using a finger sweep, and delivered five rapid blows to stimulate breathing. The infant responded immediately, coughed and started breathing.
Upon arrival of emergency medical services, humidified oxygen was administered and the baby was determined to be in stable condition. Serenity Green and Davidson were taken by ambulance to Westchester Medical Center for further evaluation.
