Officer William Eng was the first to respond to that emergency call of an unresponsive baby.
Bodycam video shows Eng running up three flights of stairs. Eng reached for the baby named Bella and performed CPR on the 29-day old.
“The baby has been revived and is going to Candler (hospital),” the officer is heard saying in the video, reported CTV.
“Officer Eng did not hesitate to jump into action. Because of his compassionate and quick response, he saved the life of this little girl,” said Sergeant Phillip Collard, Officer Eng’s supervisor.
