BodyCam Footage Shows Deputy Pulling Over a Car and Saving a Newborn's Life

A South Carolina sheriff's deputy bodycam captured the moment he helped save the life of a 12-day-old baby girl who had stopped breathing after choking.

Originally the deputy had pulled a car over for speeding when a passenger told him they were rushing a newborn to the hospital who was choking and stopped breathing.

The mother and stepmother of the girl said she evidently woke up choking, possibly on milk.

In this crazy bodycam video footage, the deputy says: "Let me have the baby." He feels for a pulse, then massages the newborn's chest. He lifts the child's neck and puts his finger in her mouth to try to open her airway and got her breathing again.

Paramedics eventually showed up and took over.

The sheriff's office has now awarded the deputy its "Life-Saving Medal."
