PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. – Zackery Dubreuiel, a Paulding County Sheriff’s Office deputy, is being recognized as a hero who saved a child, after performing ‘life saving actions’.
On September 30, 2022, while assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division, Deputy Dubreuiel was conducting a traffic stop on Dallas Acworth Highway at the Ace Hardware.
While he was on the traffic stop, a distraught male pulled up in a vehicle and told Deputy Dubreuiel that his infant child was not breathing and unconscious.
The parents of the baby handed the child to Deputy Dubreuiel and he immediately noticed that the baby was limp and was neither breathing nor responsive.
Deputy Dubreuiel immediately began to perform a sternum rub on the child with no response. He then began performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on the baby.
Deputy Dubreuiel continued CPR until Fire and EMS personnel arrived on scene.
Once Fire and EMS arrived, Deputy Dubreuiel turned lifesaving efforts over to them. Before they left the scene, Fire and EMS advised that they were able to get a pulse back on the child.
Medical professionals later stated that as a result of Deputy Dubreuiel’s life saving actions, the child’s life was prolonged. The singularly distinctive accomplishments of Deputy Dubreuiel reflect great credit upon himself and the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office.
