LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arkansas police officer is being hailed as a hero after he rescued a choking toddler Sunday night, authorities said.
When he discovered that a nearly 2-year-old boy inside the vehicle was choking, he sprang into action, pulling the child out of the SUV and using a Heimlich technique to dislodge a piece of candy from the toddler’s airway, the news outlets reported.
Dashcam footage captured the dramatic rescue, including the moment that the child began breathing and returned to his parents, according to KARK.
