REIDSVILLE, N.C. -- A 2-week-old infant is alive thanks to the quick actions of a Rockingham County Sheriff's Deputy and a State Trooper.
According to a release from the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Clayton Doss and Trooper T.T. Tucker were on patrol when they both heard a call for help dispatched that an infant was not breathing.
Trooper Tucker and Deputy Doss arrived at the home in Madison and immediately began CPR on the baby.
Deputy Doss used a suction cup on the baby's mouth and nose while Trooper Tucker performed chest compressions. They kept performing CPR until EMS arrived and took over. Fortunately, the baby began breathing again.
