From the first moment a mother and father see their newborn, they are in love. Few feelings can compare to the instant connection and determination to protect them from the world's dangers.

Parents cannot stand to see their kids in pain and will do anything to prevent them from anguish. One dad was distressed when his little girl needed help urgently. Every passing second mattered, and they were far from any medical personnel.

LIFE CAN CHANGE IN AN INSTANT

A couple stopped at Shorty's convenience store in Louisville, Kentucky, unaware they were about to experience one of life's scariest moments.

The proud dad enjoyed the first week with his newborn daughter, Emma. He loved every second of their time together and had already formed an unbreakable bond in seven short days.

NOWHERE NEAR A MEDICAL FACILITY

Baby Emma stopped breathing, and her dad didn't know how to save her life. He felt hopeless and knew that with every passing second, things grew grimmer. He feared the worst and couldn't imagine a life without his daughter.

The experience was a first for the officers who only started wearing their police badges in 2021—they felt the pressure and weight of every move they made.

The devastated father ran around the convenience store, pleading with people to come and help baby Emma. He barely spoke English and struggled to communicate, shouting that his baby was "No Bueno," meaning "My baby is no good."

IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME

While the frantic father ran in and around Shorty's convenience store, First Division Officers Nicholas Greene and Noah Cole arrived at the gas station.

It was a routine stop for the officers, but soon they realized they needed to jump into action. Greene shared:

"We just ran outside and [saw] what [the] situation was, the mother was in the backseat with the baby. My partner Cole did all the talking on the radio while I tried to perform CPR on this baby."

IT WAS A FIRST FOR THE COPS

The selfless cops worked quickly, afraid for the lifeless baby but hoping for the best. Emergency services were on the way as Officer Greene contained the resuscitation attempt. He knew how important it was to get the oxygen flowing again.

The experience was a first for the officers who only started wearing their police badges in 2021—they felt the pressure and weight of every move they made.

Greene had never performed CPR on a baby and was stressed but calm. He added:

"My heart rate was through the roof. But you know, we are trained to know the answer to questions and keep a calm level headed as to perform the tasks that we need (sic)."

A SIGN OF RELIEF

The experience was intense, but the family witnessed a miracle thanks to the officer's quick action. The baby started crying, and Greene instantly knew things were looking positive. He shared:

"When the baby started screaming and whining, that was like, 'Okay, there’s oxygen getting to the brain, there’s oxygen inside the body.' So that was the ultimate sign of relief."

THEY WERE TRAINED TO HELP

The officers were called heroes, but both men stated it was part of the job. They were honored to have played a role in saving the baby's life and happy to report that she was doing well after the ordeal. Officer Cole said:

"When we have our interviews into the police department, I’m pretty sure everybody says 'hey, I want to help somebody.' This is just one of the things that we do every day. We try to help somebody."

They added that every day as a cop was different and brought new challenges. However, their goal remained the same—being available whenever a call for help arose.
