Cody Hubbard received numerous accolades after he saved 3-week-old Grady from choking. His actions will not go unrewarded as he is set to receive an award.


An Arkansas Police officer identified as Cody Hubbard prevented what would have resulted in a tragic situation after he saved a 3-week-old baby, Grady, from choking to death. 

During an interview with KARK 4 News, Hubbard explained that a typical day became chaotic in a matter of seconds. When the 23-year-old officer answered the distress call, he prayed for the Lord to be on his side the whole way to the location.

According to reports from KARK 4, the parents of the child, Katelin and Joe Chronister, explained that their baby was choking on anti-gas drops. 

On arrival, the policeman took hold of the baby and gave the three-week-old several pats on his back till he began to breathe. The fears of the parents turned into gratitude in a moment.

Hubbard, who had been capturing the moment, proceeded to his car and turned off the camera. He revealed that he broke down into tears. However, the officer felt good seeing how things turned out. Joe said he and his family were grateful to Hubbard for saving their son's life.

Taking to their Facebook page, the Pottsville Arkansas Police Department noted that one could never know what is ahead of him or her for the day as an officer. The penned-down information revealed that things could go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye. 

Daves was able to flag down two officers to help her with the baby. On arrival, one of the officers performed CPR.


The department thanked Officer Hubbard for his quick response which saved the little boy's life. The post that showed the policeman holding Grady in his arms revealed that saving lives was what they were all about.

Reports have it that officer Hubbard will be given a life-saving reward later this month. In the meantime, Grady is doing very well. Although the 3-week-old baby will not remember this gesture, his parents will never forget it.


In another incident, a 16-year-old known as Chase Eller saved a choking baby while he was eating at a local restaurant. Eller was with his girlfriend when he noticed a baby coughing and struggling to breathe.

Speaking to Today, Eller explained that he recalled a lesson he had learned from a health class. He immediately turned the infant upside down and freed the baby's airway.

In a related scenario, Franklin Mansari and Agnes Daves are thankful to some New York police officers for saving the life of their baby girl, Annalise, after she stopped breathing.

Daves was able to flag down two officers to help her with the baby. On arrival, one of the officers performed CPR while the other called an ambulance.

With the help of two extra police officers around the area, a couple of chest compressions were performed and the little girl was revived.
