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.
