Peralta Presents State Citation To Hero Rookie Cop From The 115th Precinct For Saving Baby

State Senator Jose Peralta presented a State Citation to police officer Osvaldo Nuñez, assigned to the 115th Police Precinct, for saving the life of an infant girl who was unresponsive when her mother brought her to the precinct. Rebeca Alarcon ran with her 20-month-old toddler to the 115th Precinct after noticing her daughter stopped breathing. Officer Nuñez, who was right outside the precinct, immediately came to her rescue. He placed the baby on the ground and performed CPR. Soon after, baby Leah began responding and opened her eyes. “Office Nuñez is a true hero. He saved the life of baby Leah who was having difficulties breathing and unresponsive. He is a hero to me, to Leah’s family, to the community and to the entire city. Thank you, Officer Nuñez,” said Senator Peralta. Not to be confused with the 114th Precinct Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Osvaldo Nuñez, Officer Nuñez of the 115th Precinct who grew up in Queens, recently graduated from the police academy.
