On May 13th, deputies responded to a call in Vevay Township, Michigan, involving an infant who was not breathing and had no pulse.

The deputies performed CPR until the infant began to breathe again on his own. The Ingham County Sheriff's Office shared the dramatic bodycam footage of the rescue (below) on their Facebook page.

"He didn't have any signs of life he was pale. He was not moving and didn't have a pulse," said Sergeant Jonte Slack, one of the first responders on the scene. "I had a million thoughts run through my head and it was a crazy emotional charged situation to deal with what."

At the time, Matthew Carlson didn't think he would see his son again. But after about 15 minutes of CPR, the child began to breathe again on his own.

"It's incredible. It's a feeling like no other, it's a feeling I never thought I would have again, it's a feeling Paige never thought she would have again," Matthew told News 10.
