U.S. Border Patrol

TUCSON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officer saved a 2-month-old baby's life last Friday.

According to CBP, a 41-year-old Arizona woman was re-entering the U.S. from Mexico with her 2-month-old son who was not breathing and possibly choking. 

An officer quickly performed gentle chest compression and breathed into the baby's mouth. The baby then regained consciousness and began to breathe on his own.

The mother of the baby then drove the baby on her own to a local hospital.

In a separate life-saving incident, an officer was able to save the life of a 22-year-old California man who had reportedly overdosed on drugs while in Nogales, Mexico. Officers gave the man Naloxone to get him breathing again. 

Nogales Area Port Director Michael Humphries praised the efforts of his officers, who have been responsible for two lifesaving efforts within the past week.
