A Bulgarian policeman in New York became a real hero after saving the life of a three-month-old boy.
Dilyan Krastev was patrolling the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday morning when a panicked woman rushed to him. She explained to the policeman through tears that her child was not breathing, she clarified bg-voice.com.
Krastev immediately started giving artificial respiration to the 3-month-old boy, who was unconscious, and his partner called an ambulance. Only the officer’s timely actions saved the baby’s life.
