NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The mother of a baby who was saved by police officers who responded to her call for help at Brooklyn bank Thursday says she is relieved and very thankful.

Officers Jeff Boardman and Anthony Isaac rushed to the Bank of America at 350 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn Thursday, where they were met by 29-year-old Sunnia Carberry holding her unconscious, unresponsive 3-month-old son, Jaylen Taylor.

“We checked his vitals, he wasn’t squeezing my hand, he wasn’t doing anything,” Boardman said.

As 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported Friday, Boardman began delicate CPR on the baby while his partner Isaac went to the mother’s aid. “I would have been frantic also. I have an 8-year-old, I have a 1-year-old. I would have been the same way,” Isaac said.

More than 24 hours, later little Jaylen appears to be doing fine, Papa reported.

“I am truly thankful to these officers — that they calmed me down and they got my son back to where he is at right now,” Carberry said.
