Galloway Officer Saves Child by Issuing Pediatric CPR and Rescue Breaths

Officer Matthew Worth
On Friday, March 28, 2014 at 5:45 p.m., Galloway Township Police Officer Matthew Worth was dispatched to an address on Federal Court after a 9-1-1 report of pediatric seizures.  
Upon his arrival, the family took him to a 16 month old child who was unconscious and not breathing.  Officer Worth reacted quickly by providing rescue breaths and pediatric CPR.  
As a result Officer Worth was able to restore the child's breathing.  The child began to cry indicating that he fully regained consciousness.  
The child was transported via Galloway Township Ambulance personnel to the Atlantic Care Regional Medical Center City Division for evaluation. The child has since been released to his parents and is doing well.
