NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – An act of heroism from a law enforcement officer saved the life of a baby.

Earlier this month, New Mexico State Police Officer Mario Herrera heard a call come over the radio for a choking 11-month-old. He spotted the parents’ car and flagged them down, getting them to pull over.
