A Chicago Police officer performed CPR on an unresponsive 3-year-old boy Thursday morning in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

Probationary Officer Tone Trujillo and his partner Officer Jose Sanchez responded to a radio call at 7:16 a.m. of a 3-year-old not breathing in a home in the 5500 block of West Gladys, according to Chicago Police.

Officer Trujillo ran into the home and began CPR on the boy, police said. Paramedics arrived a short time later and took over resuscitating him.

The boy was taken to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, where he is “said to be running around the ER like a normal 3-year-old,” police said.
