NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 3-year-old Brooklyn boy has police officers to thank for saving his life after they performed CPR on him.
Young Elie Lewis was recovering at home Tuesday after he stopped breathing and was revived by a pair of New York’s Finest.
“It brought tears to my eyes,” Officer Bermaly Nunez told CBS 2’s John Slattery.
The incident happened Monday morning in Bedford-Stuyvesant, where 57-year-old Josephe Elise was driving his niece’s son to day care. But just a block from their home the child, while in his car seat, experienced respiratory distress.
“Foam came from his mouth,” Elise said.
