Law enforcement on Tuesday released body cam footage of a Florida police officer saving an infant from drowning, despite being unable to swim herself.
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Officer Me’Atia Sanderson saved the life of an infant drowning in a retention pond in June. The video showed Sanderson rushing to help the child, pulling him out of the water, then performing CPR until paramedics arrived.
In the body cam video, Officer Sanderson arrives at an apartment complex and immediately dashes toward a retention pond behind one of the buildings. “Help! Over here!” A woman can be heard shouting. Sanderson rushes towards her. “Where’s the baby at?” the officer asks.
“In the pond,” the distraught woman responds, pointing into the water. “He’s somewhere under there,” she adds.
