A baby boy is hospitalized Tuesday morning in stable condition after being resuscitated by a sheriff’s deputy following a traffic stop in Lakewood.

Deputy Tyler Milton spotted a vehicle driving erratically on Lakewood Boulevard approaching the Artesia (91) Freeway about 10:20 p.m. Monday and initiated a traffic stop, according to Deputy Tracy Koerner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The vehicle stopped and a man exited the vehicle with a baby boy who was not breathing, Koerner said.

Deputy Milton put out a call for help and began trying to resuscitate the boy. Deputy Alissa Farrington arrived and transported Milton and the boy to a hospital, said Koerner.

During the drive, Milton performed CPR on the boy, who began breathing on his own prior to arrival at a hospital in Long Beach, Koerner said.

The age of the child was not disclosed.
