Sergeant Coneely and Officer Modelewski (Illinois) …South Side of Chicago. Officer Modelewski and then-Officer Coneely responded to a drive-by… in that left five people with… wounds. The officers were immediately met by a woman carrying an 11-month-old child with a wound on his side. Officers Coneely and Modelewski radioed for an ambulance, they were told none was available as all ambulances in the area were en route to other scenes. The officers felt like they had no choice but to violate the protocol and take the child to the nearest trauma hospital immediately. As they pulled into the hospital, emergency staff was readily prepared to administer aid to the infant which survived the shooting.”~ http://www.nleomf.org/
