(KNX 1070) - A Los Angeles County Lakewood Sheriff station deputy is being credited with saving the life of a baby.

Deputy Tyler Milton stopped a car driving erratically Monday night on Lakewood Boulevard towards the 91 freeway and found inside a panicked mother whose baby boy had stopped breathing.

Milton quickly assessed the baby and determined the baby was unresponsive and not breathing.  He broadcast for help and another deputy arrived on scene to assist, according to the LASD Lakewood Sheriff's Department website. 

Milton began CPR as the other deputy sped their squad car to a local hospital.

Eventually, the baby began taking breaths again in the car.

The baby boy is listed in stable condition.
