SUFFREN - A Suffern police officer is being credited with saving a baby's life.

Officials say officer Tim Dunn helped a frantic mother revive her choking 2-month-old over the phone.

A recording of the 911 call details how Dunn calmly instructed the mother. "Can you open his mouth and see if he's got anything in his mouth? Take a little tissue and wipe the spit away. OK, is it helping at all? OK, that's a good sign if he's doing that," advised Dunn.

First responders eventually arrived at the house and took the baby boy to Good Samaritan Hospital where he is expected to be OK.
