This morning at 1:49 am, Secaucus police received a call from a mother stating that her two-week old baby was turning blue, officials said.

Officers responded to the 700 block of Golden Avenue where they found the baby boy not breathing and immediately began life saving efforts, police said.

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was performed on the infant by Police Officers George Sikaffy, Jude Masullo and Michael Bronowich. The infant’s airway was opened and the infant began to breathe on his own, authorities said.

It is not yet determined what caused the infant to stop breathing. He was transported to Meadowlands Hospital and discharged several hours later. At this time, the infant is in good condition, officials said.
