The body cam of an officer with the Savannah-Chatham Police Department in Georgia captured his heroics upon reporting to the scene of a frightening call.
Officer William Eng rushed into action after a call was received about an unresponsive 29-day-old baby girl.
The baby girl, Bella, had begun to choke at home. According to Bella’s mom, Tina Adkins, the infant had turned beet red before turning blue. That’s when Tina sent her son to call 911.
Officer William arrived at their apartment complex. His body cam filmed him frantically rushing up three flights of stairs to reach the family. There, he was met by a desperate Tina, holding Bella — who was unresponsive — in her arms.
Officer William didn’t hesitate. He rushed into action, taking Bella from her mom and beginning CPR.
Finally, after a few anxious moments, Officer William saw Bella move.
“I heard a little cry. I stopped, and I turned her to my face and saw her eyes open, and she started moving,” the officer recalled. “I was so relieved.”
“I just thank God for him,” Tina said. “Without him, she may not have been here today, so I thank God for him.”
During a recognition of his actions at police headquarters, Officer William was able to reunite with Bella and her family.
