Officer Races Up Stairs, Saves Life of Infant

A Savannah-Chatham police officer saved the life of a 29-day-old baby December 1.

A "heroic" police officer has been reunited with the infant whose life he saved in a heartwarming video released by his department.

The officer calmly resolved the situation "I didn't know if it was a seizure, if she was throwing up or what was going on". He was the first to arrive on scene, where he hastily ran up three flights of stairs.

When the officer found the infant and her mother, the child was not responsive. "I stopped and I turned her to my face and saw her eyes open and she started moving", Eng said.

Officer William Eng was not one of the officers dispatched to the scene, but chose to go after realizing how close by he was.

The local favorites next play Asian champions Urawa Reds on Saturday, while Auckland City were sent packing home early. Al Jazira, who qualified as champions of host nation the United Arab Emirates, also gave away 22 free kicks.

Baby and mother were then taken to the hospital where doctors said the officer's quick actions saved the little girl's life.

Eng's supervisor, Sgt. Phillip Collard praised his actions that day as an "exceedingly heartfelt, lifesaving performance". "I panicked", she said.

But officer Eng, 46, believes it was just all part of the job.

"He jumped right in and did what he had to do in order to save my baby, and I thank god for that", Ms Adkins told NBC 5.
