UPDATE: The 18-month-old son of a Saddle River police officer was breathing as he was placed into a chopper at HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley in Westwood after losing consciousness. Word later was that he was doing OK.

Westwood police cleared the way for a Hillsdale ambulance to get to the hospital landing area on Old Hook Road following the incident moments earlier at a grandparent’s home on Stratton Avenue — ironically, the same block where the late James Gandolfini’s sister lives.

“He’s unconscious but breathing,” Westwood Police Chief Frank Regino told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

AirMed One picked up the boy and took off for Hackensack University Medical Center just after 6 p.m.

EDITOR’S NOTE: A previous version of this story had the name of the father’s town wrong. I apologize sincerely.
