WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) – Windsor Locks Police performed a life saving treatment that saved a five year old life.
On May 23rd just before 9:30 a.m. police responded to 15 Codey Way after reports of a 5-year-old boy having problems breathing. Officers arrived on scene and were met by the boy’s 12-year-old sister who informed police of the boy’s condition.
The boy was in a frantic state kicking and flailing his arms, he said he couldn’t breathe, his stomach hurt and was in pain.
Police tried various interventions with negative results. The child’s condition deteriorated and he went limp, unresponsive, and stopped breathing. A pulse check confirmed the worst and the officers began CPR.
Officers opened his airway and used a Defibrillator as the child turned pale and his eyes were unresponsive. After cycles of CPR, the AED machine analyzed the child’s heart rhythm. After a few more cycles, the child started breathing on his own and became responsive to light.
Windsor Medics then arrived on the scene and took over. They the brought the boy to the hospital.
