Two security guards are being hailed as heroes after assisting a mother whose infant son was choking.
It was just before noon that Joey Madrigal and Niko Nesbeth pulled into a gas station at a busy Beverley Hills intersection and saw a scene unfolding before them.
A mother with a baby in her arms was screaming if anyone was a doctor, and Nesbeth, a former marine, rushed to help despite the fact he wasn’t a doctor.
Before he knew what was happening, the mother practicaly threw the baby into Nesbeth’s arms, who convenes with his partner and, noticing the infant’s face is blue, immediately flipped him over to start patting his back to clear his airways.
“Then he tells me baby isn’t breathing. Right then and there, I then turn and one thing I’ve learned through training and everything is that you gotta slow down time, and you gotta realize and just get all the facts and put it all together because I was pretty much in charge of getting the rescue as fast as possible,” said Madrigal.
As private security guards for the company Covered 6, Madrigal used his private communication line to 911 to get an ambulance there immediately.

“It was the best feeling to feel that way: to assist a community especially a little child, that’s amazing,” Nesbeth said.
The whole incident was captured on the station’s security cameras, and the two men are being hailed as heroes whose quick and decisive actions saved the baby’s life.
Nesbeth and Madrigal believe it was a sort of divine intervention that saw them arrive on the scene at that moment.
