BROOKLYN - A pair of NYPD officers is being hailed as heroes for reviving a 3-year-old boy in Bed-Stuy.

Elie Lewis was being driven to day care Tuesday when he started having difficulty breathing. His great uncle stopped the car and screamed for help, and neighbors flagged down a police cruiser.

Officers Bermaly Nunez and Charlene Vazquez pulled Lewis, who had become unresponsive, out of the vehicle. They performed rescue breathing and chest compressions until he began breathing again.

The young boy was taken to Brooklyn Hospital and released a short time later. His family says he will be going back to the doctor to try and figure out what caused the respiratory seizure.
