On 12 October in Hood County, Texas, a call came through to 911 from a father saying that his toddler son was not breathing and not responding.
Chase Miller of the Granbury PD was dispatched to the scene at around 7pm. The video shows his arrival on the scene, where the distraught parents and others are standing outside waiting, with the mother cradling the small, lifeless boy in her arms.
Miller takes the child from her, holding his head and gently laying him on the ground. He immediately begins CPR.
The father of the boy stands alongside, appearing to be in shock, while his mom is frantic.
Officer Miller performs CPR before asking the father to take over briefly while he fetches a CPR mask from his vehicle. He then resumes CPR.
It was reported that he continued with his efforts for 20 minutes and eventually the boy started breathing again.
The latter part of the video shows the emotional reunion when Miller gets awarded for his bravery. The gratitude of the parents and affection of the child are clearly visible.
