Cop Honored At A Wedding Of The Girl’s Life He Saved 20 Years Ago

Back in December 1993, then-Sergeant Joseph Barca of Yonkers answered a call from a panicked father whose 2-month-old baby girl, Shammah Hammideh, had stopped breathing, according to the Journal News. Barca arrived on the scene and was able to revive the child. Since the incident, the hero has been regarded as a member of the Hammideh family, and, this week, he was on hand to see now-20-year-old Shammah get married.
