Bodycam Footage Reveals How Brave Police Officer Saved Newborn Girl’s Life

His quick thinking and heroic actions are now going viral!

True acts of kindness from random strangers keep reminding us that God touches everyone’s life in different ways. Selfless service to humanity is what makes the job of a policeman such an honorable one. Belonging to such a noble profession, an officer managed to add even more honor to his position by doing all he could to save a newborn and therefore changing the life of the baby’s family forever.

The bodycams worn by police officers in several areas to capture footage prove very useful! One such bodycam recorded a heart-touching video that was shared all over social media. A 29-day-old baby, Bella, was choking and she started turning red before finally turning blue. The heartbroken mother, Tina Adkins, was helplessly holding her newborn who was not moving. Savannah Police Officer William Eng rushed to the spot and saved the newborn.

The body cam video captured shows Eng rushing through the stairs to finally get to baby Bella who appears still. Eng did not wait for a moment, he knew that he had to do something really quick in order to restore Bella’s breathing. He performed a CPR and then Eng continued to perform chest compressions for nearly a minute without any response until, finally, it worked and he heard a faint cry! Recalling the whole incident Eng said, “I stopped and I turned her to my face and saw her eyes open and she started moving.” This was such a beautiful moment for the mother and Eng himself!

Newborns are vulnerable and sensitive. Taking care of them is quite a task and seeing a newborn suffer can be truly heart-wrenching, especially for their mother. The pain that Tina Adkins must have experienced when Bella simply stopped breathing due to choking is truly unimaginable. This is why Eng’s act of kindness is something that truly deserves to be shared and appreciated. The life of a police officer is quite a busy one. They are always on their toes handling emergency situations but this is a different kind of emergency that Eng had to face. Saving a dying person itself is a huge ordeal and saving a tiny infant can be even greater. Eng reacted without the slightest hesitation and this is what helped save the baby’s life.

Talking about the beautiful thing that Eng did for Bella that day, her mother said, “I just thank God for him. Without him, she may not have been here today, so I thank God for him.” Eng was later honored for his generous act and he also got to meet baby Bella again. It was indeed a beautiful moment shared.
