According to a recent story in the San Jose Mercury News, a Fremont, California police officer was successful saving a non-responsive toddler.
Officer Ghailan Chahouati and his colleague Officer Mike Gilfoy quickly determined after arriving on the scene that the child was suffering from a febrile seizure.
Officers were called about 4:40 a.m. after someone called in to report that a two-year-old girl who was not breathing. Officer Chahouati arrived at the home in a flash — a response time of 63 seconds. He was followed by Officer Mike Gilfoy.
The cops put their heads together and surmised that toddler had suffered a seizure. The seizures are caused by a high fever and can cause children to stop breathing, convulse or choke.
With no time to spare, Gilfoy worked to cool the child down and had her calmed and breathing by the time Fremont Fire Department and Paramedics Plus arrived, Bosques said.
The toddler was transported to a local hospital for precautionary measures but it looks like the girl will be okay thanks to two quick thinking cops.
