California police officer's quick thinking managed to save a child who was not breathing with the whole incident being recorded on his body cam. Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Officer Nick Ferara helped save a child's life after a parent started to call out for someone to help while inside the Harbor Station. In the clip, taken at about 1:25 p.m. Tuesday, Ferara could be seen inside the station as a parent appeared to panic while holding his child. The man could be seen heading away from the entrance to the station while Ferara followed after him. Ferara took the child from the parent and proceeded to smack his back and checked to see whether he was breathing. In the clip, Ferara said: "Is he breathing? I can't wait, I don't know if he's breathing right now. He's not breathing, hold on." As Ferara held the child, he smacked his back in the hope that he would start breathing again. He can then be heard asking someone to call an ambulance. The child was taken to a nearby bathroom where Ferara continued to smack his back and another man was seen cupping water from the tap and putting it on the child's head. Ferrara told the child: "Breathe, come on." After a short while, the child was placed on the bathroom floor and could be seen moving. Ferrara then put the child in the recovery position and repeated his call for someone to call an ambulance. Relieved, he said: "OK, OK. He looks good though. Do you guys need any help on the phone? You know that he's breathing? I think he's breathing, I think he's breathing." As the clip continued, it appeared as if the child became conscious and had started to breathe comfortably on his own again. Ferrara said: "OK, better. There he is." Text at the end of the LAPD video read: "The child was transported by rescue ambulance to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. "The Los Angeles Police Department is proud to highlight extraordinary moments in everyday police work."
