Doctors have credited Luisa Urrea, a breastfeeding police officer, for saving a baby’s life, after she was called to a remote forest in Columbia, after locals found a starving tot in the undergrowth with part of her
umbilical cord still attached.
The baby was also at risk of hypothermia, so while waiting for the ambulance, Urrea started feeding her. Doctors say the tiny girl would have succumbed to starvation and hypothermia had Urrea not stepped in.
But modest Luisa told newsmen that: “I’m a new mother and I have milk and I recognized the needs that this poor little creature had. I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances.”
