Two Chicago Police officers are being credited with saving a woman’s life early Sunday in the Belmont Gardens neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

At 2:10 a.m., the 25th District officers were called to assist paramedics for a call of a woman who wasn’t breathing inside an apartment in the 3100 block of North Milwaukee, according to police.

They found a 27-year-old woman unconscious on the floor with a pale complexion and blue lips, and one of the officers started performing CPR while the other cleared the room and checked for a pulse, police said.

The first officer was able to revive the victim to “shallow breathing” by the time paramedics arrived, police said. The woman was taken to a hospital and her condition was stabilized.

One officer is a field training officer and the other a probationary officer. Police have not released their names.
