Local parents are praising a police officer for saving their baby’s life.
PITTSBURGH — A local baby is at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh right now doing really good and it’s all thanks to the officer that doctors said helped save her life on Saturday. The parents said something seemed off, so they decided to take their baby to the hospital. Joe Schleicher, the father of the baby explained that his nine-day-old baby, Olivia, was fussy and that his wife noticed something very wrong.
She’s not breathing I have to get her out of the car seat and we were sitting at a red light at that point,” Schleicher explained. That’s when they flagged down Pleasant Hills Officer Kristin Mitrisin, who was a few cars up from the Schleichers, and she took quick action. “I heard beeping next to me.
“I asked him ‘sir can you please get the AED out of my car. ’ He said, ‘yes I’m a corrections officer, I’ll help you’,” Officer Mitrisin stated.
