Texas officer saves boy after he stops breathing

Granbury, Tex. (KTVT) — Plenty of hugs and even tears of gratitude were shared between Granbury Officer Chase Miller, and 3-year old Brayden Geis’ family.

Brayden’s mother Bethany said, “There is nothing I can give him for saving my son’s life.” Bethany is talking about the moments caught on police dash cam.

Her son had seizure outside a fast-food restaurant and it caused him to stop breathing.

She said, “When he started having a seizure I panicked. I didn’t know what was going on.” The video shows Officer Chase Miller responding and immediately beginning CPR. “Lips were bright blue. Had an elevated pulse so I began doing chest compressions. all of that was working,” said Officer Chase. That’s when he instructs the boy’s father to continue chest compressions while he ran to grab a CPR mask.

As soon as he returned he delivered rescue breaths and moments later Brayden began breathing again. When asked what the moment was like when Brayden started breathing again, Officer Miller replied, “I was very thankful very relieved that he started breathing. He started coughing, he started crying.”

For that quick life-saving action, Officer Miller is receiving the kind of gratitude that even words can’t sum up. “He just seems like a very good man,” added Brayden’s mom.

While everyone else is calling him a hero, he says he was simply, “Just doing my job. I truly believe that any other officer I work with would have done the exact same thing.”
