  • "Yonkers Cop to Attend Wedding of Newborn Baby He Saved"

    With all the bad stuff going on lately, I just had to post this.
    When Shammah Hammideh gets married next weekend near Chicago, by her side will be both the ordinary -- her groom, her family, her bridal party -- and the extraordinary, the police officer who saved her life 21 years ago.

    Hammideh, 20, and a recent nursing school graduate, was just two months old in December 1993 when she stopped breathing.

    The first emergency worker to respond to her family’s Yonkers, New York, home was Joe Barca, at the time a sergeant in the Yonkers Police Department.

    Barca performed CPR on Hamideh as the pair traveled to a local hospital. By the time they reached the emergency room, according to Barca, she was breathing on her own.

    That's neat
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      Yonkers is a pretty rough city and most of the police news coming out of there is negative. Stories like this make it worth while to deal with the bad parts of the job. I just wish the media would spend more time talking a out the cops doing good, than things gone wrong.

        Not to detract from the story, because it is very uplifting, but to write that a 20-year old was saved 21 years ago sounds a little odd. Just saying.

          Haven't you ever heard of "predictive policing"?

              I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. For me, it didn't erase all the unhappy stuff I read yesterday, but it "rounded off the edges" somewhat.

                .....it is the stuff for which we all do what we do. I'm happy for Ofc Barca, he received a twenty-year validation goodness for all the hardness he had to take throughout his career. Great story.
