Lynbrook Firefighters Honored for Saving Toddler

Sen. Dean Skelos honors Chief Anthony DeCarlo and Firefighter Josh Parsons.

When an 18-month-old toddler had trouble breathing while visiting his grandmother's house in Lynbrook last spring, Lynbrook Fire Chief Anthony DeCarlo and Firefighter Josh Parsons came to the rescue.

When the incident happened on April 11, the firemen were the first on the scene and transported the toddler to South Nassau Community Hospital in DeCarlo’s vehicle.

"Their quick thinking and decisiveness saved the [child's] life," Sen. Dean Skelos posted on Twitter, explaining that he recently presented DeCarlo and Parsons with legislative proclamations to honor them for the "selfless acts of heroism."

He added, "Keep up the great work!"
