Boy, 3, saved by off-duty police officers
Two off-duty police officers have saved the life of a three-year-old boy who was choking in the street in a North East Lincolnshire village.
The boy was with his parents when he fell ill and started having convulsions on Humberston Road in New Waltham on Monday.
They officers - who are husband and wife - saw they were in trouble and stopped to help out.
The pair, who wish to remain anonymous, gave the boy treatment and cleared his airways before an ambulance crew arrived and took him to hospital.
Humberside Police said they were "very glad" to say the boy and his parents were doing well.
The officers have played their actions down, but I’m extremely proud of what they did while off-duty today. It shows to me that all our officers across the force constantly work to protect our communities whether they are on or off-duty. To me, stepping up like this to look after people is the very essence of what makes us the police.”
