Off-duty deputy saves choking 3-year-old boy's life

- An off-duty deputy with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department is being called a hero.

This is deputy Robert Carrasco holding a smiling three-year-old Nathan Lopez.
   
Last month Carrasco was having dinner with his family at a restaurant when he noticed Nathan was choking.
   
He raced over gave him several blows to the back and eventually dislodged a piece of candy that was stuck in Nathan's throat.

  


Nathan's mom and dad admitted they felt helpless when their son was choking and credit Carrasco for saving his life.
