Transcript for BodyCam Video Shows Moment Officer Saves Unconscious Baby
Finally tonight, a special reunion. A family getting to thank their guardian angel, a police officer who says he was just doing his job when he saved an infant who appeared to stop breathing. The baby's family calling him a hero, and you may too after seeing his body cam that captured the rescue in action. Here's ABC's John donvan. Is she breathing? Reporter: You're not going to see her face -- not yet. But focus on her hand, fingers motionless, that's what a cop's lapel camera recorded when the call came. Baby unconscious, possibly not breathing. Martin smith, alberquerque police, got the call. Anybody that's had that training would automatically like you say go on autopilot and start responding and dog that. Reporter: That means he started to doing cpr on the kid. I started rubbing her chest and blowing in her face. Reporter: And it takes a few tense seconds, and now the fingers, they start moving. There she is. Hi. Hi, baby. Hi. Reporter: And there's a glimpse of her face. She starts opening her eyes, so Carly who was 7 months old when this happened in may is fine now and getting medication for seizures. Of course, officer smith is getting the hero treatment now. Congratulations. If it wasn't for him, who knows what the outcome of this situation could have been. Reporter: And, of course, as cop and kid were reunited just the other day, he's saying it's undeserved. That's what makes this job good. That's the good part of it. Reporter: John donvan, ABC news, Washington. I'm sure Karly will thank officer smith as soon as she starts talking. "Gma" first thing in the morning and David Muir right back here tomorrow night. I'm Tom llamas in New York.
