A Harriman police officer acted quickly to save the life of a choking infant last month.
His employers took notice.
Michael Wesley Cox was honored for his work this month with a medal of commendation and lifesaving ribbon.
“Officer Cox cleared the child’s airway by turning her over and slapping her on the back three times,” Harriman Mayor Chris Mason said, reading the commendation Cox received.
Cox received the call about the 3-week-old infant choking on Bennett Circle on the evening of Dec. 6.
