ORLANDO, Fla. — A police officer credited with saving an infant’s life at an Orlando grocery store in June was honored Wednesday.
Orlando police officer James Falbo was in a local grocery store on June 12 picking up some lunch, when he was told there was an emergency in a dining area.
When Falbo got to the dining area, he found a family in crisis and an 11-month-old infant not breathing.
Falbo found that the infant was choking on some food and he immediately jumped in to help save the child.
At a ceremony on Wednesday, Orlando Police Chief Eric Smith presented Falbo with a lifesaving award for his actions.
