Bibb County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call of an unresponsive infant in the 900 block of Ponce De Leon Circle at  around 9:20 a.m.  

When Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Sgt. Reginald Washington arrived on the scene, he noticed that 5-week-old, Stoni Edwards, was not breathing and was turning red the face. He believed that there was an obstruction in the airway, and used life saving measures by turning the baby over, and giving several palm blows to the infant’s back. Sgt. Washington was able to clear the obstruction from the airway and baby Edwards began to breathe. Deputies believe that baby Edwards was possibly choking on a formula mix.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and transported the baby to the Atrium Beverly Knight Olsen Children’s Hospital for treatment.  The child has been discharged from the hospital.
