Little Marcos Vega Jr. had stopped breathing and was turning blue, but 2 hero undercover cops sprung into action to save his life.
Marcos Vega had just returned with a box of diapers to his E. 169th St. home in the Concourse section of the Bronx when his wife and three daughters began screaming for help shortly after 1 p.m. Monday.
His wife, Kathleen Kilian, ran downstairs holding their 6-week-old son, Marcos Jr. — who had stopped breathing and was turning blue.
The frantic couple dialed 911 but didn’t wait for an ambulance — they darted outside near Grant Ave. and began flagging traffic for help.
“We tried to stop all kinds of cars,” said Vega, 36. “We tried to get a cab. Nobody would stop.”
The officers “risked blowing their cover” and rushed the family into their unmarked car to drive them to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, a law enforcement source said.
