BALTIMORE, USA – Three United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers helped save an unresponsive infant aboard a departing airplane on Wednesday at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI).
CBP officers Tyler Brady, Supreme Jones, and Spencer Warner were conducting outbound inspection operations on a flight departing to Montego Bay, Jamaica, when at about 12:23 pm, a passenger reported that her infant son wasn't breathing, said a press release from US Customs and Border Protection.
CBP officers noticed that the boy was unresponsive and Warner immediately initiated lifesaving efforts by administering compression only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Meanwhile, Jones notified BWI Fire Rescue and Brady established a safety perimeter.
BWI Fire Rescue paramedics arrived on scene at about 12:30 pm assumed lifesaving efforts, and transported the infant to a local hospital. The infant is expected to make a full recovery, the statement said.
