Breastfeeding Cop Saves Life of Abandoned Infant

It turns out that a great first line of defense when an abandoned infant is discovered is a breastfeeding cop.

"If there was a problem, yo, I'd solve it" may have been the lyrics from Vanilla Ice, but I'm pretty sure it's police officer - and new mother- Luisa Fernanda Urrea's mantra.

The fast-acting officer is being praised after saving the life of an abandoned baby by breastfeeding the newborn until an ambulance arrived. After arriving on the scene in a remote forest settlement in Colombia, where the baby was found in undergrowth, she quickly noticed the little one - who still had part of her umbilical cord attached - was starving and at risk of hypothermia.
