On Wednesday 5 January, PC Challenor and PC McDonald were patrolling the Moss Side area when they were approached for help on Alison Street by a distressed mother whose baby was unresponsive.
Whilst waiting for the ambulance to arrive, the officers resuscitated the baby by patting its back and performing compressions, and were able to get back some faint breathing.
On ambulance arrival the paramedics assessed the baby.
It was established that the baby had been suffering from an infection which had caused fluid to enter the airway and that the officers' timely actions had helped to save the baby's life.
Inspector Anuratti Singh, of GMP's City of Manchester district, said: "This is amazing work from our officers whose swift action has saved a baby's life.
"The work of a police officer is incredibly varied, and they can be faced with a number of different situations each and every day.
"I am immensely proud of the professionalism of our officers in how they handled this situation as it could easily have been a very different story. Thanks to them baby Jood is safe and well."
