Argentinian Police Officer Who Breastfed Someone’s Hungry Baby Promoted
The popular police officer in Argentina who is being hailed a hero for stepping up to care for a malnourished baby by breastfeeding him, has just been promoted. Officer Celeste Jaqueline Ayala was working guard duty at a children’s hospital when the neglected infant was brought in. On hearing him cry in hunger, she asked hospital staff if she could hold the baby and began to nurse him, reports the Mirror. The crying baby began to calm down as soon as he was fed. The incident took place last Wednesday at the Sor Maria Ludovica children’s hospital in Buenos Aires.
A picture of the touching scene was clicked by onlooker Marcos Heredia and shared on Facebook, where it quickly went viral.
Since being posted online, the picture has collected over 1 lakh ‘shares’ and hundreds of comments praising Ms Ayala on Facebook alone. On Twitter, her name has even been turned into a hashtag.
