CASTLE HILLS – Two Castle Hills police officers are being hailed as heroes for rescuing a choking infant over New Year’s weekend.
The Castle Hills Police Department shared a post on Facebook Wednesday, honoring Corporal Tomblin and Officer McClellan for their save.
Both were first to arrive at the scene and upon arrival, they found the infant had signs of a partially blocked airway and had blue lips and cheeks, according to officials.
Cpl. Tomblin used the training he received in 2019 and helped remove the partial blockage from the child’s airway, police said. Soon, he was able to clear the child’s airway before firefighters assisted in the response and took over care.
“This truly is the type of call that officers will remember well after their career in law enforcement is over,” Lt. W. Waggoner said in a statement.
