A Lake County Forest Preserve ranger revived a baby who apparently had a seizure Saturday while at an event at the Greenbelt Cultural Center in North Chicago.

Officer Logan Dreyer was on duty at the event when a 15-month-old boy stopped breathing and was not moving, according to a release by the forest preserve police.

Dreyer called 911 and then began giving CPR to the baby, who started breathing again on his own periodically. When the baby would quit breathing again, Dryer would resume CPR.

The baby was taken to Vista Medical Center in Waukegan, and later doctors determined he might have had a seizure. He has since been released from the hospital and is doing well.

"Swift and decisive action by Officer Dreyer, trained in CPR for infants and adults, contributed to the baby's survival," the release said.
