Officer Robert Carter.
Officer Robert Carter of the Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Police Department was assisting a woman, who was hearing impaired, and her infant child in locating a hotel. The woman was lost and needed a place for her and her child to sleep that night. After arriving at the hotel, followed by the woman in her own vehicle, Officer Carter entered the hotel to make the arrangements for her. Suddenly, the woman ran into the hotel screaming hysterically holding her infant. The child had turned blue and was covered with vomit. Officer Carter, realizing the infant's airway was obstructed, cleared the passage, began CPR, and revived the child. Officer Carter's quick response and CPR skills saved the infant's life.
