Video: Texas Police Chief Saves Baby's Life

November 06, 2018  | 

A baby in Montgomery County, TX, was saved by a police chief's quick actions Friday.

Splendora Independent School District Police Chief Rex Evans was on routine patrol, driving from school to school around 2 p.m. when a panicked family flagged him down at a traffic light. The family in a minivan told him they had a baby inside who was not breathing.

The dramatic bodycam video shows Evans pull the baby from the van and start CPR, reports the Houston Chronicle. Just as paramedics pulled up, the baby started breathing again.

"It was such a relief to hear that baby cry," Evans said. "... It hits you right in the heart."

Well done Chief. Amazing that you had been brought to this scene by someone who obviously wanted you there.
