Moment Kentucky cop saves the life of seven-day-old baby girl who stopped breathing

-

- Advertisment -

Police-worn body camera caught the moment a rookie cop saved the life of a week-old baby girl by giving her CPR after she suddenly stopped breathing.

The video shows Officer Nick Greene following a man outside a Shorty’s convenience store in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday and running up to a red truck, where a woman was slouched over in an apparent attempt to protect her baby girl.

At that point, Greene’s partner, Noah Cole, whose body-worn camera captured the entire ordeal, could be heard calling for an ambulance at the gas station at the intersection of 18th Street and Broadway.

Meanwhile, Greene sprang into action, gently hitting the seven-day-old baby’s back as she appeared to be motionless.

Finally, after a few tries, the girl could be seen crying out as her breath returns and she began to move her arms.

‘There we go, there we go, there we go,’ Greene could be heard saying before telling his partner that the situation is under control and handing the baby back to her crying mother as she sighed with relief.

‘We got it breathing,’ Cole radios in on the emergency line.

The mother then thanked the helpful officers, who only joined the Louisville Police Department last year.

In an interview, Greene described the ordeal, saying that he and Cole had just started their shift for the day.

They normally begin their shift by speaking with local business owners, and had stopped into the Shorty’s to talk to the gas station owner.

At that point, Greene said: ‘A gentleman runs into the gas station and telling us his baby is no good,’ he explained, noting that the man barely spoke English but clearly needed help.

‘He said my baby’s “No bueno” so that means “My baby is no good.” So we just ran outside and see what [the] situation was that we had, and the mother was in the backseat with the baby.’

Greene said they found the baby, named Emma, not responding in her mother’s arms. 

‘I tried to key up on the radio, but I couldn’t key up on the radio, so my partner Cole, he did all the talking on the radio while I tried to perform CPR on this baby,’ Greene recounted.

‘I couldn’t talk on the radio, but when I heard the baby come back crying [I was] like, “Oh, we got it, we got it.”

‘When the baby started screaming and whining that was like “Ok there’s oxygen inside the body.” So that was the ultimate sign of relief.’

It remains unclear what caused the baby girl to stop breathing.

Greene also revealed that he has never done something like that before, telling Spectrum News 1: ‘My heart was through the roof. At one point in time, my watch clocked my heart rate at like 130 beats per minute within a split second.

‘But you know, like I said, with training we have, we are trained to actually know that answer to questions and keep a calm level head as to perform tasks we need.’

‘Its just part of our job,’ Cole added. ‘We signed up to do it, it’s something we signed up to do: serve and protect our community. And that’s just part of the job, it’s another day in the job.’ 

Louisville police say Emma was checked out by Emergency Medical Service on the scene and was brought to a local hospital in the immediate aftermath.

She is now healthy and back home with her family.
