NYS Trooper saves baby from choking.
On August 29, 2018 at approximately 8:15 P.M., a Trooper stationed out of SP Machias was traveling on State Route 16 in the Town of Machias. While traveling on Rt 16 the Trooper noticed a vehicle abruptly pull to the shoulder of the roadway and the occupants exited the vehicle. The Trooper responded to the vehicle and was immediately met by a male subject carrying a one-year old baby. The male subject was yelling that he needed help, and the baby was choking. The Trooper immediately took the baby and performed back blows which dislodged the object from the baby’s throat. Delevan Fire and Rescue responded to the scene and evaluated the baby. The baby was healthy and the Father signed off with the medical personnel. *The family of the one-year old request no picture or interviews.
