Border Patrol Officer Saves Choking Illegal Immigrant Child, Mainstream Media Silent
According to officials the child's mother said the boy was eating when he suddenly stopped breathing.
Officer Stacey McIssac noticed a one-year-old child choking on his food. She sprung into action and quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver on the child, clearing his airway.
“This life-saving action illustrates how quickly our officers and agents respond when they see something not quite right,” said Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Rodolfo Karisch in a released statement. “Her actions embody the character of our men and women serving our front line.”
Thanks to Stacey, a child's life was saved on this day.
Stacey is a 5 year veteran of the CBP who is normally stationed in Buffalo NY but but was temporarily stationed to the southwest border in July.
