COLOMBIA — An officer is getting high praise for going above and beyond the call of duty after she helped save an abandoned baby by breastfeeding it while the ambulance was en route, Metro news reported. 

Luisa Fernanda Urrea, a new mother herself, was called to a remote settlement when police found the baby in some undergrowth. The baby was starving and at risk for hypothermia.

Urrea breastfed the child while the ambulance was on its way. 

“I’m a new mother and I have milk and I recognised the needs that this poor little creature had,” Urrea told the news site. “I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances.”

The infant was treated and is expected to make a full recovery.
