GOOD NEWS 'He Was Sent from Heaven': Texas Police Officer Saves Choking Toddler
A little girl is alive and well thanks to the heroic actions of a Texas police officer, and it was all captured on his body camera.
When 22-month-old Bexley Norvell went limp and stopped breathing on Sunday, her parents immediately called 911, Fox4News.com reported.
Officer Patrick Ray, with the Rowlett Police Department, luckily was in the area and was on the scene within minutes.
Ray spent a few moments trying to clear the little girl's throat, and then came the noise he was hoping for. Bexley started to cry and began breathing again.
They later discovered that he had dislodged a coin that was caught in her throat.
Ray explained on "Fox and Friends" this morning that when he responded to the call, he looked into Bexley's eyes.
"I just saw big blue eyes looking at me. It was almost to the point she didn't have to say anything. She looked at me. I knew she wanted me to help her," Ray said. "She knew I was there to help her and everything was going to be okay."
"I just did what I would do to my kids if something was going on."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart," Bexley's mother, Tammy Norvell, said to Ray. "I know that he was sent from heaven to be in that exact spot at the time that the call came in."
