Utility Workers Being Called Heroes After Saving Baby's Life

A utility worker and his co-workers are being called heroes after saving a Massachusetts baby's life.

According to Norfolk Fire, first responders arrived at the scene on Park Street around 9 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a baby not breathing.

When firefighters and police officers got there, they say they found Antino Depina, an Eversource employee, performing CPR on the baby that had been brought outside the home, which helped the baby breathe again.

Norfolk Fire says in a Facebook post that Depina and three other Eversource employees, Bruce Greim, Chuck Dwyer and Mike Hurley, stopped after seeing the baby being carried into the street.

Authorities say the baby had fallen into the home's bathtub.

Norfolk Fire commended Depina's actions as another example of how CPR training can help the outcomes in emergency situations.

"A life was given a chance this morning in Norfolk solely because a person was trained and able to perform under terrible circumstances, this man and his co-workers were true heroes," Fire Chief Cole Bushnell said.
