STANISLAUS COUNTY (CBS13) —  A Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Deputy was honored Monday night for his life-saving actions.

Last November, Deputy Jacob Callahan saved an infant that was struggling to breathe. When the 911 call came in, Deputy Callahan arrived at the Patterson home within a minute and was able to get the infant breathing again by patting it on its back. He then comforted the baby until paramedics arrived.
