Body Camera Captures Moment Police Officer Saves Baby's Life

Body cam video shows officer Eng sprinting up three flights of stairs where he found a 29-day-old baby, Bella, who wasn't breathing.

"It's why I wanted to become a police officer in the first place - to make a difference and save lives".

Eng performed CPR for more than a minute before baby Bella began to cry again, to the family's relief. Looking at my child, when she started choking. "I just took a deep breath and did what I was trained to do". "Looking at her, she was turning beet red", Adkins said. "Without him, she may not have been here today, so I thank God for him".

Chief Joseph Lumpkin described Eng's actions as an "exceedingly heartfelt, lifesaving performance". "Because of his compassionate and quick response, he saved the life of this little girl", said Sgt. Phillip Collard, Eng's supervisor.

Bella's mother, Tina Adkins, and Officer Eng have since been reunited, with the grateful mother praising the officer's life-saving actions. The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department wrote on Facebook.

But officer Eng, 46, believes it was just all part of the job.

"The baby has been revived and is going to Candler (hospital)", the officer is heard saying in the video.
