Officer saves baby after father's assault


 (CNS/FOX11) A Los Angeles police officer saved a baby's life after the boy was slammed to the ground during a fight between the man and his wife, police reports say.


The domestic dispute was Saturday evening inside an apartment near

Columbia Avenue and Miramar Street in the Rampart Division, according to LAPD

Officer Norma Eisenman .


The 3-week old infant stopped breathing after his father slammed him

to the ground and LAPD Officer Alex Frasier from Rampart Division revived the

child using chest compressions after he responded to the call, Eisenman  

reported. The child's current condition is  unknown.


A neighbor called police after hearing screaming and yelling coming from the apartment.


The child's mother suffered scratches in the fight, police reported.

And she ran outside screaming for help, neighbors told the station.

The unidentified father was arrested for child abuse, authorities said.
