Deputy revives 9-month-old baby who was not breathing

A 9-month-old baby boy was hospitalized Tuesday morning in stable condition after being resuscitated by a sheriff's deputy following a traffic stop in Lakewood.

Deputy Tyler Milton spotted a vehicle driving erratically on Lakewood Boulevard approaching the Artesia (91) Freeway about 10:20 p.m. Monday and initiated a traffic stop, according to Deputy Tracy Koerner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The vehicle stopped and a person exited the vehicle with a baby boy who was not breathing, Koerner said.

Deputy Milton put out a call for help and began trying to resuscitate the boy. Deputy Alissa Farrington arrived and transported Milton and the boy to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, said Koerner.

During the drive, Milton performed CPR on the boy, who began breathing on his own prior to arrival at the hospital, Koerner said.
