BALTIMORE — Three U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers helped save an unresponsive infant that was on board a departing airplane on Wednesday at BWI Airport.

CBP Officers Tyler Brady, Supreme Jones, and Spencer Warner were conducting outbound inspection operations on a flight departing to Montego Bay, Jamaica when, at about 12:23 p.m., a passenger reported that her infant son wasn’t breathing.

The CBP officers noticed that the boy was unresponsive and Officer Warner immediately initiated lifesaving efforts by administering CPR. Meanwhile, Officer Jones notified BWI Fire Rescue and Officer Brady established a safety perimeter.

BWI Fire Rescue paramedics arrived on scene at about 12:30 p.m., assumed lifesaving efforts and transported the infant to a local hospital.

“This infant and his parents were incredibly fortunate that highly trained Customs and Border Protection officers were nearby to render immediate life-saving assistance to help paramedics save this precious young child’s life,” said Keith Fleming, Acting Director of Field Operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office.

The infant is expected to make a full recovery.
