COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs police officer helped save a 13-day-old’s life by administering CPR.

Officer Mike Palmer and recruit officer Kevin Hall responded to a call of a baby not breathing at the Spruce Lodge on Wednesday morning, KRDO reported.

The officers found baby Ezequiel unconscious and not breathing. Palmer started CPR until paramedics arrived about a minute later.

The baby was revived and taken to a hospital, police said.

Palmer told KOAA it was the third time he has saved a life.

“It’s difficult and sometimes unpleasant so it’s incidents like this that make you feel good and make it all worth while,” Palmer said.

Baby Ezequiel is still in Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
