Two Cleveland Police officers are being heralded as hero after they saved a baby who was not breathing Monday evening.

Cleveland Police say officers Mark Worsencroft and Vu Nguyen were flagged down while on patrol near Pershing Avenue and Broadway Avenue.

Worsencroft says he and Nguyen were at a red light when a car pulled up next to them and a woman stepped out carrying a baby. 

The woman was yelling, "My baby isn't breathing, I need help," Worsencroft recalled. 

The officers were able to give the baby CPR and revive the infant.

Worsencroft and Nguyen were able to take the baby to a nearby fire department where fire officials were able to help. 

The baby was rushed to Metro. The baby’s current condition is unknown at this time.

"Today was a good day," Worsencroft told's Mark Durdak. "Every now and again you get to have a good day on the job."
