This is the moment a S.W.A.T officer administers CPR with his fingers on an unconscious baby and saves him.
The event took place when officer Oden was patrolling the area along the Martin Luther King Corridor, in the city of Atlanta, located in South-Eastern US, on 13th May, around 12:38pm.
The officer noticed a vehicle driving down the street with its hazard lights active and the horns blowing continuously.
Officer Oden followed the vehicle to investigate what was happening.
The vehicle parked at the Fire Station and the occupants jumped out and ran toward officer Oden for immediate assistance.
The video shows officer Oden leaving his car to check the situation.
A woman runs to him holding a 4-month-old infant, and she can be heard saying: “He’s not responding”.
Officer Oden then begins checking the child’s pulse and is unable to find it.
He immediately does a radio dispatch of the situation, and then begins administering CPR while the baby is lying on the grass.
Officer Oden continues CPR on the infant, pressuring harder with his fingers until the emergency services arrive.
At the end of the video, the infant’s legs begin to move, indicating that the reanimation was successful.
The baby was then rushed to the hospital for further treatment.
City of Atlanta Police Department praised the officer’s reaction and added: We could not be prouder of him in this critical moment. We know the City of Atlanta is safer with SPO Oden and our team of professional, responsive, and caring officers who do this work and patrol our streets, 24/7, and 365 days a week. It is indeed a calling. Job well-done sir!.
