GRANBURY, Texas (AP) — A Texas police officer has been honored for going out of his way to help save a little boy’s life.
Police in Granbury say Officer Chase Miller was scanning his radio’s EMS channel on Oct. 12 when he heard a dispatcher call for paramedics to respond to a 911 call about a 3-year-old boy who had stopped breathing. Police say Miller realized he was near the location and immediately responded.
Video from Miller’s dashcam shows him performing CPR on the boy until he resumed breathing. The boys’ parents told the officer he had suffered a fever-induced seizure. He was later taken to the hospital.
Miller was given the city’s Life Saving Award on Tuesday. He was joined at the ceremony by the boy and his family.
