On December 1st, officers were called to the 700 block of West 57th Street for a call of an unresponsive newborn baby. It was all caught on an officer's body camera.

On Friday night, Officer William Eng arrived at Montgomery Landing Apartments in Savannah, Ga.to respond to a 911 call about an unresponsive one-month-old baby.

Body camera footage, shared on social media by the department, shows Eng running up three flights of stairs before taking the baby, later revealed to be named Bella Walker, into his arms. "I stopped and I turned her to my face and saw her eyes open and she started moving", Eng said.

Bella's mother, Tina Adkins, and Officer Eng have since been reunited, with the grateful mother praising the officer's life-saving actions. Bless you, Officer Eng and Baby Bella. "Without him, she may not have been here today, so I thank God for him", Adkins told the Post.

Chief Joseph Lumpkin described Eng's actions as an "exceedingly heartfelt, lifesaving performance". According to police, doctors at the hospital say the baby would not have survived without Eng's first aid.

"I just thank God for him", Adkins said.

"I didn't know if it was a seizure, if she was throwing up or what was going on".
