Officers Save Choking Child
On July 22nd, 2019, Culver City Police Officers Banda and Simon received a radio call of a 5 year old child not breathing at a residence. Upon arrival, the Officers rushed into the residence and contacted the child’s mother, who was holding the child.   
The officers quickly determined that the child was choking and not breathing.  The officers took control of the child and, in an attempt to clear the child’s airway, began to administer a “back thrust” technique to the child.  After several thrusts, the child began to breathe again. 
As a precaution, the child was transported to a local hospital and was found to be in good condition.
Needless to say, Officers Banda and Simon’s decisive actions saved the life of the child.  Both officers will be honored at tonight’s City Council meeting at 7:00 PM, in the Mike Balkman City Council chambers (9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City, Ca. 90232).
