Not all heroes wear capes. In fact, many wear badges.

This is true for officer Atziri Ortiz with the Oxford Police Department (OPD) who responded to a 911 call regarding an infant child unable to breathe on Thursday.

According to OPD, Oritz noticed that the child appeared to be choking. The officer then flipped the child over and began lifesaving measures, removing whatever was lodged in the baby’s throat, and allowing the infant to be able to breathe again.

The infant was taken to the emergency room for an evaluation, but is doing fine as of now.
