A local police officer based in the small town of Granbury, Texas responded to the call of duty with flying colors, by rescuing a 3-year-old’s life with CPR, an emergency action needed to keep the child alive.
Thankfully the whole event was caught on Officer Chase Miller’s police vehicle camera, the dashcam.
Now, we have it here for all of you to see:
According to Granbury Media, the local police team’s YouTube station said, “on October 12, 2016 at 6:59 p.m. Hood County 9-1-1 received a call from a father whose 3-year-old son is not breathing. Officer Miller performed CPR on the unresponsive child and revived him.”
The 1:49 second video demonstrates the heroic scenario.
Beginning with Hood county receiving a 911 phone call and Chase Miller moving consciously and swiftly once he heard it come through the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) channel.
The officer’s car was located minutes away, so he made the move to it. On site, he grabbed the boy from the frantic mother and performed CPR. As he went to put the child down, he asked the father of the young child to temporarily take over, so he could get the CPR equipment.
One he returns with the necessary stuff, Miller continues to perform CPR and the toddler starts to breathe again.
Last week, seven days after the man of duty saved the child’s life, the officer received the Life Saving Award. It was presented to him by the Granbury Mayor, Nin Hulett, at the local City Council meeting held on Oct. 18.
Of course the parents and the 3-year-old were in attendance.
So far, the YouTube video post has received over 500,000 views.
