Caught on Camera: Heroic Officer Saves Child


GRANBURY, TX – A Granbury Texas police officer is being called a hero for saving a toddler’s life after his father called 911 to say he wasn’t breathing.

Officer Chase Miller was scanning the EMS channel and heard the call. He was first on the scene, and it was all caught on dash cam video.

Dash cam video shows the moment police officer Chase Miller pulled up to a Granbury Texas fast food restaurant. 3-year-old Brayden Geis was not breathing and his frantic mother was carrying the toddler’s limp body in her arms. 

Officer Miller heard the emergency call. He was close by and he made it to the family before the ambulance did.

“Lips were bright blue. Had an elevated pulse so I began doing chest compressions, saw that wasn’t working,” said Officer Miller

Braden’s father knelt nearby and watched Officer Miller give CPR. Miller then told the boy’s father to continue chest compressions while he ran to the car to grab a CPR mask.

Miller returned and after about two more minutes Brayden started breathing again. 

“There is nothing I can give him for saving my son’s life,” said Bethany Hoover, Brayden’s mother.

Miller received an award from the City of Granbury for saving the boy’s life, and Brayden has fully recovered.
