New Windsor Officer Schettini Saves Life Of Infant

Last week, New Windsor’s Officer Maria Schettini saved a life with her quick response to the scene of a choking infant. The 6-month old was limp and turning blue in the face when she arrived. Her immediate actions in delivering a series of back blows between the infant’s shoulder blades resulted in the obstruction being cleared from his airway. The infant then began to cry and breathe normally and he was transported to the hospital by NWEMS.

Later, Officer Schettini returned to the scene to check on the infant and we took this photo.
