Rookie Cop Saves Life of Unresponsive Two-Week-Old Baby

“He performed a miracle,” says the child’s eternally grateful mother.

A rookie police officer in Upland, Delaware County is being called a hero after he saved an unresponsive newborn’s life Sunday. Officer Jonathan Keeney says he was just doing his job. At 21 years old, he has just a year’s experience on the Upland Borough Police force, but he handled a very scary and stressful situation like a total veteran.

“I just kept asking him, ‘Is she going to be okay? Can you save her? Can you help her?’” said Charmaine Freeman, baby Mecca’s mother. Freeman had the scare of her life Sunday when she realized her 2-week-old daughter stopped breathing. “I was feeding her. I stopped feeding her. I went to go burp her and maybe like five minutes after I burped her, I realized she wasn’t breathing,” she said.

Freeman immediately called 911. Being just a block away at the police department, Officer Keeney arrived within minutes.
