CHICAGO -- A team of Chicago police officers on patrol in Englewood is being credited with saving the life of a child.
Police pulled over a speeding car at 8 p.m. Saturday night, near Union Avenue and Marquette Road.
The woman driving told them her child was choking.
The officers pulled the 2-year-old girl out of the car, and started performing the Heimlich maneuver on her.
They felt they were running out of time, so they put the child in a police car and rushed her to the hospital while an officer tended to the girl in the back seat.
The child, who possibly swallowed a piece of candy that became lodged in her throat, was revived by the time she reached the hospital.
