Dashcam video shows deputy saving choking child in traffic

Dashcam video captured the intense moment when a sheriff’s deputy saved a choking child while at a red light in Dallas.On May 31, the video shows a mother carrying her 4-year-old daughter to a deputy’s car behind her at a busy intersection. “Just basically handed me her baby that was not responsive at all,” Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputy Keith Rose told KTVT. “I grabbed the baby and turned her over and pat her on the back, some fluid came out of her mouth, placed her on the driver’s seat and just started CPR.” Moments later, Rose said he was relieved to see the child moving and breathing on her own.”Of course, my concern was that mom didn’t squeeze her too tight that she would be unconscious again,” he said. Rose, who has nearly 35 years of experience, said he hadn’t handled anything like this before, but his training was crucial. “I work in the warrant section and we train quite a bit and quite often we throw in officer down rescue type training and it helps out with medical and CPR and different types of situations,” he said. “All the years that I’ve been out here, this is right at the top. Just glad I was at the right place at the right time.”The child was taken to the hospital for further evaluation after she was revived.
