Two Chattanooga Police officers brought an infant back to life on Saturday.
Officers Clayton Holmes and Josh May were the heroes in the life-saving incident.
While the two officers were en route, they were told that the child was "unresponsive" and that CPR was being performed.
When they walked in the door, they found "a small infant laying on the couch lifeless" and cyanotic (bluish discoloration due to a lack of oxygen).
The officers could not find a pulse and they found that the child was not breathing.
Officer May, a former medic, began CPR and chest compressions.
Officer Holmes said, "Color change was noted and infant squirmed. Two more breaths were given and child started wheezing and gasping. Pulse was found, compressions and rescue breathing stopped. Child became more alert and started to cry."
He said fire personnel then arrived and began basic life support.
The child was transported to T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital by EMS. Officers Holmes and May went to the hospital an hour later.
Officer Holmes reported, "All personnel at T.C. Thompson were thankful. We found a smiling and alert child. Parents were very grateful and emotional. Many thanks were received from the guardians of this baby.
"I would like to add as a former medic that Josh May did an outstanding job. Officer May's actions were crucial to the mortality of this child."
