Cops clear way for cardiac arrest toddler in Xmas fairytale

Boy saved by massage in nick of time after race through traffic

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 9 - Carabinieri police cleared a way through Naples notoriously chaotic and log-jammed traffic for the parents of a one-year-old boy who had suffered a cardiac arrest in what they described as a "Christmas fairy tale" that ended in a life-saving procedure Thursday.
    The toddler's parents dashed into their car when they found their son unconscious but were soon snarled among the cars packing the southern Italia city.
    They began shouting for help and were heard by the cops who immediately sprang into action and cleared their path to the nearest hospital where the boy was saved by a heart massage.
    "The doctors said he would have died if he had arrived a minute later," said the relieved parents, adding "it has really been a Christmas fairy tale ending". (ANSA).
