DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police say a veteran officer has saved a 2-year-old boy who stopped breathing as his family arrived at the State Fair of Texas.

Police say Senior Cpl. Matt Gnagi (NAG’-ee) visited the boy Monday at a hospital. The toddler’s name and further details on his medical condition weren’t immediately released.

A police statement says a woman and her three children were parking Sunday at the fairgrounds and were near a gate when the toddler stopped breathing. The mother started screaming for help.

Gnagi, who was stationed near the gate, did CPR on the boy until the child could breathe on his own. Emergency personnel transported the boy to a hospital.

Gnagi has been a Dallas police officer for 33 years.
