Dramatic bodycam footage has captured a South Carolina delegate who saved the life of a newborn baby during a traffic jam.

Deputy Will Kimbro of the Sheriff & # 39; s office in Berkeley County says he was on patrol in Summerville on June 11 when he stopped a speeding car.

One of the passengers told Kimbro that she was rushing to the hospital for a 12-day-old baby named Riley, who had stopped breathing after drinking a bottle.

That was when the assistant sheriff jumped into action and started performing first aid to get the baby to breathe again.

The video shows the baby & # 39; s mother who handed her in to Kimbro, who quickly performs artificial respirations.

He then checks for a heartbeat and starts massaging her chest around her heart.

& # 39; Come on baby, cry for me, cry for me & # 39 ;, Kimbro sounds. & # 39; Come on, open those eyes, dear. & # 39;

After Kimbo starts massaging her lips and Riley makes a few weak cries, he says: & As long as she cries, she breathes. & # 39;

He then tells the mother that he will resuscitate until EMS arrives – which they did about five minutes later.

& # 39; I never felt a heartbeat before, so I started massaging her heart and now I feel it is really very strong, & # 39; Kimbro told the mother when the first responders took over.

Sheriff & # 39; s Office spokeswoman Carli Drayton told CNN that Riley was taken to a hospital for observation and has since been released.
