Deputy called hero after saving baby in store

May 7, 2010 8:25:00 AM - thestate.com

A Richland County Sheriff’s deputy and an emergency technician are being credited for saving the life of a baby at a Northeast Richland store.

Deputy Albert Fredericks was on patrol at the Killian Road Walmart Wednesday morning when a woman stopped and told him her baby, whom she was carrying in a harness, had stopped breathing, the sheriff’s department said.

Fredericks removed the child and performed emergency resuscitation techniques. After a few moments, the baby coughed and started crying.

Another customer, Lashassandra Brown, an emergency medical technician intermediate, checked the child while emergency responders were on their way.
