An Edison State College campus security officer helped save a baby's life.

Little Anthony was saved by the quick thinking of his parents and emergency crews. The one-year-old who was choking on a penny earlier this week slept soundly Thursday night. Sgt. Herbert Hall, a security officer at Edison State's Collier campus, helped save him.

"She was reaching into the infant's mouth with her finger and it was obvious to me that at that point something was caught in the child's throat," said Hall.

The mom was able to get the penny out, but Anthony still wasn't breathing. That's when Sgt. Hall says he gave Anthony mouth to mouth.
