TULLYTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — A Tullytown borough police officer is being credited with saving a newborn baby’s life just a day before Thanksgiving. Bodycam footage shows Tullytown Police Officer Nate Aldsworth performing CPR on baby Zachary last month.

It was a day that started like most others for Aldsworth until it wasn’t.

“I had just cleared a traffic accident,” Aldsworth said. “I was walking back to my car, and I got dispatched for, dispatch said a 4- to-5-day-old baby that wasn’t breathing, possible obstruction.”

Upon his arrival at the home, he sprung into immediate action.

“When I ran into the house, I saw the mom and the baby on the ground,” he said. “The mom was hysterical, justifiably so, and I saw baby Zachary was pale white and he had blue lips.”

Relying on the countless CPR training courses he’d taken over the years, Aldsworth administered the life-saving procedure to baby Zachary after checking for and finding no obstruction.

“I started CPR and eventually he opened his eyes and it was a feeling of relief,” Aldsworth said, “and I told the mom, I said I think he’s going to be OK, I think he’s going to be OK.”

Thanks to Aldsworth’s quick thinking, Zachary is OK.

“It was the most stressful call I’ve been on in my 17 years,” Aldsworth said. “I think every officer has been on scenes, for me I’ve been on scenes for young children that didn’t make it. I try to stay positive, but in this job, there’s good moments and there’s bad moments. This ended up being a good moment. When he opened his eyes, it was the most relief I’ve had and maybe one of the happiest moments of my life when he opened his eyes.”
