On Thursday, December 7th, Uxbridge Police received a 911 call for an infant not breathing.  During the call officers were advised by dispatch that the mother and grandmother had left the residence and were driving to the fire department. Dispatch was able to obtain a vehicle description and relay that information to the officers. Moments later Officer Kyle Tripp intercepted the vehicle.  Officer Tripp ran to the vehicle and the the grandmother handed him the infant out the window.  He quickly sprang into action and began performing back thrusts to remove what was preventing breathing.  After several back thrusts, the infants airway was able to be cleared and Officers Tripp and William Ethier advised dispatch the baby was now crying and breathing.

The Uxbridge Fire department arrived on scene and the infant was transported to Milford Hospital.

Tonight on Facebook, The Uxbridge Police Department announced the baby is now back home with Mom and Dad and doing well.
