He ran from across the street, where he was reporting a different incident, and took the infant to perform CPR. Their Facebook post read:

“For several minutes, Officer Garcia did chest compressions and got the baby to begin breathing again. Mountain View fire personnel arrived on scene quickly afterward and conducted follow-up medical care.”

Fortunately, the baby was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment and has been given clearance to go home with his family.

Officer Garcia received praise from many who heard of the news, including the department’s chief officer Chris Hsiung. He said:

“I am so proud of the quick actions that were taken to help this littlest Mountain View Resident. It is a good feeling to know we have someone like Officer Garcia ever ready to help our community in a time of need.”

Garcia was not the only officer who was recently praised for saving a baby. In August, Duncanville police officer Pinilla responded to a report about a child asleep alone inside a vehicle.

When he arrived, the infant was crying and sweating while covered in vomit. Immediately, Pinilla called for paramedics and broke the window of the car.

Campos’ former partner, Eustajia Mojica, was arrested for negligence resulting in the child’s death.

He got the infant and stayed in an air-conditioned patrol car until the paramedics took over and ensured the baby’s safety.

According to the police, “All indications seem to point to this being a mistake caused by false assumptions and faulty communication about the infant’s well-being.”

Both the Dallas County Grand Jury and the Child Protective Services have been alerted of the incident and are discussing whether civil or criminal charges would be pressed.

Duncanville Police Department released a statement stating that they were grateful for how the incident turned out as similar occurrences result in tragedy.

California dad Reuben Campos was among those who experienced a tragic loss when his three-year-old daughter was left inside a hot car.

Campos’ former partner, Eustajia Mojica, was arrested for negligence resulting in the child’s death. According to Mojica, she did not notice that the child did not get out of the car when her two other kids did. When she realized the toddler was missing, it was too late.
