Decisive actions of Transit Police officers rescue the day.

On July 16, 2014 at approximately 4PM a Transit Police officer assigned to the TPD's communication center, located at the department's Headquarter's in Roxbury, received a call from the Massachusetts State Police seeking assistance. The TPD officer was informed there was an unresponsive 2 year old in a vehicle ( vicinity of
Transit Police
93 Southbound overpass) and may be possibly behind Transit Police HQ's. The quick thinking officer immediately proceeded to the rear of HQ and located the vehicle. The officer took the toddler, who was breathing but not alert, from his grandmother and raced the child into Transit Police HQ's building. Another Transit Police officer, who worked previously as an EMT for the City of Boston, assisted and recognized the child was seizing.

Boston EMS responded and took over care of the toddler. The toddler was transported to a local area hospital for further evaluation but is doing just fine thanks in part to decisive actions taken by the officers. Great job guys !!
