SANDUSKY, Ohio (WTVO/CNN) — Police officer revived a premature baby who stopped breathing after leaving the NICU, and the dramatic moments were captured on camera.
Mother Kayla Monk was at home when her 3-week-old son Teyvin went suddenly limp, ABC 7 reports.
“I went to undress him, went to feed him and he pretty much flatlined,” Kayla Monk told WTVG-TV.
The officer’s body cam captured him beginning CPR on the infant, and soon the boy let out a cry.
“He ended up getting him to gasp twice, they said, and they ended up getting a pulse. I think originally, he thought he wasn’t going to either because (Teyvin) had already coded in a way. I don’t know how he did it, but he did it,” Monk said.
Teyvin had to be taken back in the NICU in isolation, ABC 7 reports.
“I want to thank them for all the hard work that they did to save my baby’s life because without them he wouldn’t be here today,” Monk said.
ABC 7 reported that the baby is expected to be transferred to a different hospital and remain there for treatment for several weeks.
