GRANBURY, Tex. – A police officer is being called a hero after saving the life of a 3-year-old boy after he suffered a seizure.
The Granbury Police Department shared he heart-pounding story on their Facebook page. Officer Chase Miller was on duty a few days ago when a 911 operator sent paramedics to to help a little boy who was unresponsive.
Three-year-old Brayden Geis had a 106-degree fever and suffered a seizure. He stopped breathing and was unresponsive.
Miller was in the area when he overheard the call and decided to help.
Dashcam video shows Miller pull up to the frantic scene. He took little Brayden from his frantic mother’s arms and immediately started to perform CPR.
“He had an elevated pulse. His heart was beating but no breath whatsoever,” Miller told KDFW. “His lips were bright blue, and I began chest compressions.”
After over a minute of performing CPR, Brayden finally starts to breathe.
Miller was presented with a lifesaving award by the Granbury City Council Tuesday.
“I never dreamed of making a difference by saving a life,” Miller said. “I’m thankful, blessed and very relieved to know he’s up and at ’em.”
