Heroic acts happen around us every day. For this choking child, these police officers acted as lifesaving heroes.

A young child was choking, and the parents called the Austin police straight away. The officers got to the scene quickly and, thank goodness, were able to rescue the child.

The officers used a tool to help dislodge the candy that had gotten stuck in the kiddo’s throat. Once the candy was dislodged, the policeman turned the child over and started patting his back.

When that didn’t work, they once again used the tool. Quickly, the choking child sat up.

He survived!

What a terrifying moment. You can tell from the mother’s reaction in the background that she did not take this child’s emergency lightly.
