An Albuquerque police officer is making headlines with a
simple act of heroism. Officer Martin Smith responded to the scene when a call
came in that a 7-month-old baby was unconscious.
The girl's family can be heard crying on the video of
Officer Smith's arrival at their home. They were distressed and worried
for the baby's safety. When Smith realized that the baby was unconscious, he
began to give her CPR and rub her sternum to revive her.
His efforts were successful. The baby began to wiggle her
fingers, open her eyes and breathe on her own. Smith continued to rub her chest
until she was fully awake again. He said that his actions were second nature once
he arrived on the scene.
