Star Ledger: Who saved the baby? Newark story in dispute

It was a feel-good story, about two Newark cops saving an 19-month-old who had stopped breathing.

Mayor Cory Booker and Police Director Garry McCarthy hastily arranged a news conference Tuesday to praise the two officers. Booker called them heroes. McCarthy said it showed how officers “make a difference in people’s lives.”

Just one problem: Seven Newark firemen and fire clerks say the story didn’t happen the way it was told at the news conference.
