Dramatic video from an officer's body-worn camera shows the infant's desperate mother, Tina Adkins, holding her unresponsive 29-day-old baby. Savannah-Chatham police Officer William Eng raced up three flights of stairs to perform CPR.

Eng finally saw Bella move, "and I heard a little cry," he told The Savannah Morning News.

"I stopped and I turned her to my face and saw her eyes open and she started moving," Eng said. "I was so relieved."

When Bella began choking, she turned beet red and also blue, her mother recalled in an interview with the Savannah newspaper.

"I just thank God for him," Adkins said of the officer. "Without him, she may not have been here today, so I thank God for him."

Eng did not hesitate to come to the family's aid, said his supervisor, Savannah-Chatham police Sgt. Phillip Collard.

"Because of his compassionate and quick response, he saved the life of this little girl," Collard said.
