|From a dash cam video. Granbury, Texas Police Officer|
Chase Miller takes a boy who is not breathing from
his distraught parents and begins CPR. It worked.
If you haven't seen it, it's scary, but a must-see. It's at the bottom of this post.
Brayden Geis came down with a fever, had a seizure and suddenly stopped breathing one day earlier this month. His frantic parents called 9111.
Granbury, Texas Police Officer Chase Miller wasn't directly called to respond to the crisis, but he was in his cruiser nearby so he raced to the scene and got there before the ambulance showed up.
You could tell Miller is a pro. His dash cam shows Miller calmly taking the boy from his frantic mother and immediately start CPR. The mom, Bethany Hoover, obviously distraught, turns away, unable to look.
At one point, Miller needs to go get a CPR mask from his cruiser and calmly instructs Brayden's father, John Geis, how to continue CPR on his son, which he does until Miller comes back with the CPR mask.
After a few excruciating moments, you see everybody step back a bit in extreme relief. The boy is breathing again.
Thankfully, he's fine now. The doctors got his fever under control, and he's back to being a normal three year old.
As the NBC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reported, the boy and his parents returned later to the police station to thank Miller.
Miller, it turns out is so modest that he didn't tell his own wife when he got home that he saved the kid's life.
It's a dramatic video, but it's nice to see a good ending. Watch:
