VIDEO: Man Meets California Officer Who Rescued Him as a Baby

Robin Barton shares a bond like no other with retired Santa Ana, Calif., police officer Michael Buelna.

The two first met 25 years ago when Barton was just four hours old, in what some would call a miracle encounter. It was Nov. 21, 1989, and Buelna was on duty in Santa Ana.

"It was like a sound of a very low meow, like a cat or something," Buelna said, referring to a sound coming from behind a garbage dumpster. Buelna started moving trash around and then made the shocking discovery.

"I noticed the umbilical cord and he was covered, he still had all the mucus and stuff and all the trash and gravel was sticking to him," Buelna told KABC TV. "I tried to give him a tiny little bit of breath and he reacted a little bit."

Recently, Barton and his adoptive parents met the officer who rescued him. Buelna said it was a very emotional meeting.
