A hero police officer managed to resuscitate a baby in the middle of the road after his mum sped past a police car on her way to the hospital.
Brendan Fraser was on duty in Warren, Michigan, on Tuesday, when he saw a speeding blue Camaro pass his patrol car.
Fraser realised after pulling the car aside that the family had an emergency and rushed to their aid.
Footage captures the moment he managed to get the eighteen month old baby boy breathing again after his lips turned blue.
The mum can be heard screaming: ‘Help, help we got a baby in here dying.’
Fraser then asks: ‘What do you mean? What do you mean?’
A woman tells Fraser: ‘We took him to the hospital. They said he had covid and then he just started seizing.’
One of the parents can be heard screaming: ‘No, please don’t take him’ before Fraser says: ‘I’m not going to take him.’
Fraser then repeatedly patted the baby on the back and attempted to dislodge what was choking him.
He then said: ‘He’s getting air, he is getting air. I can feel him.’
The panicked parents, who remain unknown, can be seen frantically crowding round the officer as the video ends.
Speaking to ABC, Officer Fraser said: ‘At this point, it’s not about writing a ticket, stopping a speeding driver, there’s an actual emergency here.
‘Watching it now it’s kind of overwhelming but in the moment there’s really not much thought other than relying on the training.’
Fraser and the family of the boy have yet to reconnect, but he said if they would like to come by the police station he would love to see them.
