Three U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and airport paramedics saved an unresponsive infant while on a departing flight from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Wednesday, officials said Friday.
Customs and Border Protection officers Tyler Brady, Supreme Jones and Spencer Warner were inspecting the outbound flight departing to Montego Bay, Jamaica, when at around 12:23 p.m., a passenger on the airplane reported that her infant son had stopped breathing.
The plane was scheduled to depart around 12:35 p.m., according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Warner immediately began administering CPR with the assistance of Jones and Brady, who notified BWI Fire Rescue, bringing paramedics to the scene around 12:30 p.m.
Paramedics took over and transported the boy to a hospital, where he is expected to make a full recovery, according to a news release.
“This infant and his parents were incredibly fortunate that highly trained Customs and Border Protection officers were nearby to render immediate life-saving assistance to help paramedics save this precious young child’s life,” said Keith Fleming, acting director of field operations for Custom and Border Protection’s Baltimore field office.
