Atlanta cop saves 4-month-old baby by performing CPR


ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – An Atlanta Police Department officer was in the right place at the right time recently and was able to save a 4-month-old baby.

SWAT SPO Officer Oden was patrolling the area along the Martin Luther King Corridor at around 12:38 p.m. on May 13 when he noticed a vehicle driving over MLK with its hazard lights on and the car horn blowing frantically.

Oden followed the vehicle to investigate a possible emergency.

The vehicle parked at an area fire station and the occupants jumped out and signaled Oden.

A woman ran into Oden holding a 4 month old baby who was not breathing. Oden could not find a pulse and immediately informed radio dispatch of the situation. Oden then began to administer CPR.

Oden continued CPR on the infant until Grady EMS arrived. At this time, there was a pulse again and the infant’s legs were moving.
