A Marco Island police officer administered CPR to a 3-year-old that was not breathing after responding Saturday to a 911 call, according to a police report.

When MIPD officer Hans Schmid arrived at the scene of 529 Tallwood St. he found the unresponsive child and her father. 

"Mr. Alejandro Hernandez Musico was doing C.P.R. on the child at the time of arrival, I immediately took over," Schmid wrote on the report. 

The child, identified as Janet Hernandez, subsequently started breathing on her own.
