It turns out that a great first line of defense when an abandoned infant is discovered is a breastfeeding cop.


“If there was a problem, yo, I’d solve it” may have been the lyrics from Vanilla Ice, but I’m pretty sure it’s police officer – and new mother- Luisa Fernanda Urrea’s mantra.

The fast-acting officer is being praised after saving the life of an abandoned baby by breastfeeding the newborn until an ambulance arrived. After arriving on the scene in a remote forest settlement in Colombia, where the baby was found in undergrowth, she quickly noticed the little one – who still had part of her umbilical cord attached – was starving and at risk of hypothermia. So she jumped to action, whipped out her boob, and ultimately saved the little girl’s life.


“I’m a new mother and I have milk, and I recognized the needs that this poor little creature had,” Urrea said in an interview with the local news. “I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances.”

The Colombian Family Welfare is now caring for the infant while it finds an adoptive home. Police are searching for the mother who may face criminal charges. Orphanage director Jhon Arley Murillo said, “We could be dealing with a case of attempted homicide, although it’s the prosecutor who will decide the charge.”
