Lifestyle| | By Matthew D'Onofrio
“Hero” is the perfect word to describe this cop.
Police Officer Chase Miller responded to a 911 call by frantic parents after discovering their son was unable to breathe. After performing CPR, he was able to return life into the boy and the incredible moment was captured on police dash-cam.
On October 12, around 7 p.m., Granbury, TX Police Department responded to a call in Hood County about a 3-year-old boy who couldn’t breathe and appeared lifeless in his crying mother’s arms.
Miller was the man on the call and proceeded to perform CPR on the unresponsive child, giving everything he could to save his life. Even dad stepped in for a moment to help out.
And eventually, the boy began breathing again.
The clearly well-trained policeman was honored for his heroic act with the Lifesaving Award by the Granbury City Council on October 18.
At the event was the little boy whose life was saved, there to support his savior with a big hug and police-themed toys as gifts.
