Two Edgartown police officers acted swiftly to save the life of a baby boy early Thursday morning.

At 2:28 a.m., officers Will Oteri and Jeff Trudel and EMs responded to a call for an infant unable to breathe, according to a report released Thursday by Edgartown police chief Bruce McNamee. Police arrived on scene before the ambulance, the report said..

At the site, two adult males directed officers upstairs to the infant, according to the report. Officer Oteri reported that the infant had no pulse and blue lips.

“As I made my way to the top of the landing, I observed the infant, lying motionless,” he wrote in his report.

Officer Oteri picked up the infant, rolled him onto his forearm and delivered CPR.

“I noticed a large amount of mucus coming out of his nose. I cleared that and delivered five more blows, dislodging even more mucus,” the report said. Officer Trudel used a bulb syringe to help clear the infant’s airway.

“The baby then began crying,” Officer Oteri wrote.

An ambulance arrived on scene soon after, and care of the baby was transferred to paramedics.

“The baby is home and doing fine. Great work by EPD Officer Will Oteri and Jeff Trudel,” Chief McNamee wrote in an email.

“I couldn’t be prouder of them.”
