Mexico City police officer Arizbeth Dionisio Ambrosio is being recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty to save an infant in the aftermath of Hurricane Otis. Following the devastating Category 5 storm, Ambrosio was deployed to Acapulco, where she encountered a four-month-old baby boy who was very hungry and distressed.

A mother of three herself, Ambrosio recognized the dire situation and the mother's inability to feed her baby, so Ambrosio offered to nurse the infant. The selfless act of compassion was captured in a photo which has gone viral, leading to widespread praise of the officer’s actions.

In recognition of her extraordinary display of humanity, the 33-year-old officer has been promoted from "Policía Primero" to "Suboficial." Mexico City Security Minister Pablo Vázquez Camacho commended Ambrosio for her dedication to service and for her role in saving the baby's life on social media. He’s calling her act of compassion an outstanding example of humanism.
