A 10-week-old baby boy whose life was saved by officers at Gracemere Police Station has returned to the scene of the traumatic event.
Police say little Lucas was “unresponsive and blue” when he was carried into the police station last month – his parents desperate for assistance.
Quick-thinking officers took Lucas onto a nearby desk and performed infant chest compressions on him, bringing him back to life just moments later, with the baby taking a breath and then letting out a heartfelt cry – sending a wave of relief around the station.
He was later airlifted to the Queensland Children’s Hospital for special treatment and diagnosed with hypothyroidism — a condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones.
Lucas spent five weeks in hospital following the event, but is now home and reportedly well and happy.
Yesterday, Lucas (pictured yesterday) and his family returned to the police station to thank those who worked to save their little boy’s life.
