New York City police officers saved a 3-year-old boy's life.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. on July 23, the New York Post reported. Officer Ariel Zaremba was approached by a man just outside of the station house in the Bronx who desperately needed help.

“He said his son wasn’t breathing,” police told the New York Post.

Zaremba and his colleague, Officer George Lippi, quickly took action. They checked the toddler’s pulse and made sure his airway was clear.

Zaremba applied CPR, but he eventually realized the boy needed the help of a medical professional.

“The child’s jaw was clenching and his eyes were rolling toward the back of his head,” police added.

Sgt. Anthony Lombardo ordered the officers to take the boy to the emergency room. The boy was rushed to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, where medics were able to revive him.

It is still unknown what caused the boy’s ailment, the New York Daily News reported.
