In a news release, the agency said that officers Tyler Brady, Supreme Jones and Spencer Warner were conducting outbound inspection operations on a flight departing to Montego Bay, Jamaica, on Wednesday. They were alerted to a problem on board the aircraft when a passenger reported that her infant son wasn’t breathing.

Noticing that the boy was not breathing, Warner began lifesaving efforts while Jones notified the airport’s fire rescue department, according to the news release. Brady established a safety perimeter.

When fire paramedics arrived they assumed lifesaving efforts before transporting the infant to an area hospital.

The infant is expected to make a full recovery, the CBP said.

“This infant and his parents were incredibly fortunate that highly trained Customs and Border Protection officers were nearby to render immediate life-saving assistance to help paramedics save this precious young child’s life,” Keith Fleming, acting director of field operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office, said in a statement.
