BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. — A Berkeley County Sheriff’s Deputy saved a 12-day-old baby’s life and it was all captured on his body worn camera.
According to the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, on June 11th , 2019, Deputy W. Kimbro stopped a vehicle for speeding and the driver quickly exited the car and told him that her baby had stopped breathing.
The mother told deputy Kimbro that the baby stopped breathing after taking a bottle, so Deputy Kimbro began life-saving first aid. Deputy Kimbro was able to detect a pulse and began repeatedly tapping the baby’s chest and inserting his finger in her mouth to allow airflow until the baby began to cry.
Deputy Kimbro was able to keep the baby breathing until EMS arrived.
For his heroic efforts, Berkeley County Sheriff Lewis award Deputy Kimbro the “Life-Saving Medal.”
