A Huntington Station family is very grateful after a couple of Suffolk County police officers came to the rescue when their baby stopped breathing.

“Newsday” reports Officers Michael Lavrovsky and Joseph Reilly responded to a call at a First Avenue home yesterday afternoon, where they found the five-month-old boy turning blue. He and his twin were being watched by a nanny, who said he started vomiting and aspirating on formula when she was giving him a bath.

The officers gave back blows to the baby and administered oxygen while rushing him to an area hospital, where a doctor was able to fully clear his throat. The baby was in stable condition last night.

Two rookie NYPD officers from Long Island are injured, one critically, following an ax attack in Queens.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says four cops were posing for a photo at 162nd Street in downtown Jamaica when 32-year-old Zale Thompson ran up to them, and without saying a word, started swinging the ax. Thompson was shot dead by the two other officers.

Officer Kenneth Healey was struck in the head and was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he underwent surgery. He is listed in critical but stable condition. Officer Joseph Meeker and a female bystander who was accidentally shot when the other two officers opened fire on Thompson, are in stable condition.

Police believe Thompson might have been inspired by terrorist attacks overseas.

The New York area has its first diagnosed case of Ebola.

Craig Spencer was hospitalized yesterday, after he called 911 and reported he was experiencing Ebola-like symptoms. A 33-year-old physician who works for Doctors Without Borders, Spencer had been treating Ebola patients in Guinea and returned to the U.S. through JFK airport last Friday.

He is in isolation at Bellevue Hospital. Health officials say his fiancee and two friends, who had close contact with Spencer, are all quarantined.

The state attorney general’s office and state Education Department, citing children’s constitutional rights, will review school district enrollment procedures for immigrant students — some of whom have been turned away from public schools on Long Island for weeks, told there is no room and not enough teachers for them.
The “joint compliance review” will begin with Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland and Westchester counties, which, according to the attorney general’s office, have the largest numbers of unaccompanied minors and undocumented youth in the state.
Its first phase will focus on districts that had the largest influx of unaccompanied minors — those 17 and younger who entered the United States illegally this year, many of them fleeing violence and poverty in Central America.
Districts have until Nov. 13 to hand over to the attorney general’s office the number of unaccompanied minors in their schools, the number of students who were denied enrollment between June 1 and Oct. 22, and the average time frame children had to wait to attend classes, among other data.

Family poverty in the Town of Babylon rose between 2010 and 2013, according to Census Bureau estimates released last month.
Between 3,000 and 5,000 Babylon families were living in poverty last year — about 8 percent of families in the town. The bureau estimated that the family poverty rate was between 2 percent and 4.4 percent in 2010.
Babylon was the only Long Island town for which data was reported by the bureau where the rise in the family poverty rate from 2010 to 2013 was statistically significant. The federal poverty level for a family of four last year was a household income of less than $23,834
