A baby, recently recovered after being born premature a little more than a month ago, has been named an honorary Sarnia Police constable.

Baby Brodie-Lynn was born unexpectedly at home June 11, with her mom just 33 weeks into the pregnancy.

Officers arrived after 5 a.m. to find the newborn grey and not breathing, her family in shock, Sarnia police said Wednesday.

One officer began CPR, waiting for paramedics to arrive.

Others spent time reassuring the child’s father and a two-year-old sibling.

Mother and baby were taken to hospital, where Brodie-Lynn remained several weeks.

On July 9, the attending officers and paramedic got back together for a small reunion with the baby who is healthy and doing well, police said. Her mom, dad, brother and sister were also there.

“911 workers respond to thousands of calls a year and a call of this nature is fairly rare so the reward of reuniting with the child and family was very appreciated,” police said, in a press release.

The youngster earned her honorary constable title for “being a real trooper and fighting a good fight.”

The baby’s grandmother, Linda Peake, told The Observer in June that everyone involved, particularly the police officers, deserved a pat on the back.

The police service thanked everyone involved for the great teamwork and quick response.
