out during protest 1

A Southern California sheriff’s deputy saved the life of a baby boy who lost consciousness during a Black Lives Matter protest last month, authorities said.

Security camera footage from May 31 shows two women sprinting across a supermarket parking lot in Palmdale and frantically approaching Deputy Cameron Kinsey with the limp child.

The 11-month-old had stopped breathing and lost consciousness during a protest at a nearby park, the department said on Tuesday.

Deputies, including Kinsey, had been monitoring the demonstration from across the street.

The quick-thinking cop ran toward the women and performed a “mouth sweep” with his finger, dislodging vomit from the child, officials said.

Seconds later, the toddler appears to be alert again, according to the footage released Tuesday. Paramedics arrived shortly after to treat the tot and take him to a hospital.
