NEW YORK -- The belch of a 15-month-old baby girl has brought tears of joy to a couple of New York City officers.

NYPD Officer Michael Konatsotis and his partner, Officer David Roussin, saved the non-breathing baby Saturday after her panicked parents called 911 when she turned blue.

The officers say it took them 45 seconds to rush to the midtown Manhattan apartment where they found the unresponsive girl. Konatsotis sat up front with her, delivering emergency breaths while Roussine made the 10-block trip to Weill Cornell Medical Center in roughly 80 seconds.

When they arrived, Konatsotis says the baby let out a big burp, color returned to her face and she started crying.

He says the officers did too.

The baby is in stable condition. Her name wasn't released.
