A police constable saved a girl who was choking on her food, the police said today.

The accident took place on Friday at 7.30pm in St Publius Street, Rabat.

The officer, Andrew Caruana, was doing the rounds when he heard a commotion in a private residence.

He knocked on the door and identified himself upon entering, finding a two-year-old girl who was choking.


He assisted the child until she spat out a piece of meat.

The two-year-old appeared to have immediately recovered but was taken to a doctor as a precaution.

Officer Caruana was later informed by the girl’s family that she was well, thanking him for his intervention which saved her life.
