A couple named John Geis and Bethany Hoover called 911 this month, because their three-year-old son Brayden had a seizure, and stopped breathing at a KFC in Granbury, Texas. (About 60 miles southwest of Dallas.)
A cop named Chase Miller happened to hear the call come through on his radio, and realized he was just around the corner. So he drove straight there and showed up in less than a minute. (We don’t know his age, but he looks like he’s in his early 30’s.)
Then he immediately put Brayden on the ground and started CPR. And his dashcam got it all on video. You can see that Bethany’s so upset at that point, she can’t even watch . . . she turns around and walks away.
Then Chase had to grab an oxygen mask from his car, so John took over for a few seconds. But they got the mask on him . . . continued doing CPR . . . and by the time paramedics got there, Brayden was breathing again.
They got him to a hospital, and it looks like he’ll be fine. There’s no word on what caused the seizure or if he’d had them before.
Meanwhile, Chase got an award for it all last Tuesday. Bethany, John, and Brayden went to the ceremony, and there’s a photo of them all posing together.
