Two North Carolina police officers are being hailed as heroes after they resuscitated a two-week old infant that had stopped breathing.

The incident occurred Friday morning after a Rockingham County Sheriff's Deputy and North Carolina State Trooper responded to a call of an infant not breathing.

When the officers arrived they immediately sprung into action.

Deputy Clayton Doss and Trooper T.T. Tucker began performing CPR, with Doss clearing the infant's nasal passageway with the use of a suction cup and Tucker performing chest compressions.

The duo continued CPR until paramedics arrived. Fortunately, the young child began to breath again and the officers are being credited with helping to save the infant.
