An Ohio State Trooper performed CPR on a unresponsive child. His actions quite possibly saved the child’s life.
From the Ohio Highway State Patrol Facebook Page:
Watch as Trooper Matthew Stoffer of the Mansfield Post performs CPR on an unresponsive 1-year-old. He responded to a call that a driver (the child’s father) was driving at a high rate of speed with hazard lights on. Upon seeing Trooper Stoffer’s marked vehicle, the driver pulled onto the berm on his own and yelled to the trooper that his daughter was unresponsive. He and his wife were trying to get to a hospital.
After performing CPR, the baby was still motionless but was breathing on her own. Mifflin Township EMS arrived and transported her to Mansfield Med-Central Hospital, where she was flown to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. She is now in stable condition.
Trooper Stoffer is received a Certificate of Recognition on November 4.
