GRANBURY, TX (WCMH) — A police officer in Texas was rewarded after his quick thinking saved the life of a 3-year-old boy.
On October 12, Brayden Geis’ mother and father frantically dialed 911 after their son stopped breathing and was unresponsive. The 911 operator dispatched an EMS team, but they were several minutes away.
Granbury Police Officer Chase Miller just happened to be scanning the EMS dispatch channel when he realized he was in that location. Dash cam footage then shows him rushing to the young boy’s aid within 60 seconds of the 911 call.
Officer chase then performed CPR for about 2 minutes, not giving up until the boy started breathing again. The city says the officer’s actions saved that boy’s life.
On Tuesday, the city presented him with the Life Saving Award, but Officer Chase once again put the spotlight back on the young boy. He presented little Brayden with several toys from Paw Patrol, which is the boy’s favorite cartoon.
