Body-cam shows officer saving life of newborn baby
SAVANNAH, Ga. - Savannah police are crediting an officer with saving the life of a choking newborn baby by racing to her apartment and then using chest compressions to restart the infant's breathing.
Dramatic video from an officer's body-worn camera shows the infant's desperate mother, Tina Adkins, holding her unresponsive 29-day-old baby on Friday.
Savannah-Chatham police Officer William Eng's camera shows him racing up three flights of stairs and then performing CPR.
Eng told The Savannah Morning News that he finally saw Bella move, "and I heard a little cry." Then, he saw her eyes open and she began moving again.
Savannah-Chatham police Sgt. Phillip Collard said Eng's actions saved the baby's life.
