A Kentucky police officer is praised as a hero after performing CPR on a one-year-old who no longer breathes and saves his life.
Sgt. James Talbott responded to a call from a baby boy who was not breathing at Misty and Nicholas King's home in Scottsville around 9 p.m. on May 21.
There, Talbott cleared the airways of the 19-month-old Aiden King and started resuscitation when he felt blue and cold.
After about 90 seconds, Arow body camera recordings show that Aiden is finally making a sound as he starts to breathe.

Mother Misty said she was going to check Aiden before she went to work and saw that he seemed to have an attack.
& # 39; When I picked him up, his body was limp and barely breathing, & # 39; she told the Bowling Green Daily News . & # 39; Usually we can wake him up with a cold cloth or ice … but it didn't work, he got completely stiff in my husband's arms and his lips started to turn blue. & # 39;
The couple says that Aiden has a number of health problems and that they have even lost a daughter earlier this year.
Misty called 911 and was instructed by a coordinator to lie down to Aiden and start a heart massage.
Officers arrived within two minutes and Talbott conducted the life-saving procedure.
Aiden breathed by the time EMS arrived and was transported to a local hospital and later to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Doctors found that Aiden's body temperature and blood sugar had risen, but medical tests could not figure out what exactly made him stop breathing.
He was released & # 39; in the evening and returned with his parents who are grateful for a happy ending to & # 39; the most frightening situation & # 39 ;.

Scottsville officers were recertified in CPR just two weeks before the incident. They are re-certified annually.
Scott Chief Police Commissioner Jeff Pearson said: & # 39; Without the first aid that Sgt Talbott had given the 19-month-old Aiden King, he may not have survived. & # 39;
& # 39; [Talbott] is a modest person who does not want attention, but we think he should be recognized & he added.
& # 39; At that time of the night, working in the third team as he does and getting that call, you might be able to get three minutes for an ambulance and those three minutes can be the difference between life and death. & # 39 ;
