When 3-year-old Brayden stopped breathing in a Texas KFC last week, his dad called 911. Granbury Police Officer Chase Miller happened to be scanning the EMS channel when he heard the call and realized he was only a minute away. He rushed over. 

Through the footage on his dashcam, you can see Miller take Brayden from his mother’s arms and begin to give him CPR with his father’s assistance. Miller keeps at it—Brayden’s mom pacing and distraught behind them—until the boy is revived.

Braydon was eventually taken to the local hospital and is now doing fine.

Tuesday, Granbury Mayor Nin Hulett honored Officer Miller with a life-saving award at the city council meeting. And Braydon and his parents were there to thank him. 

Miller even gave Braydon a gift: A toy of his favorite character from the cartoon Paw Patrol, who just happens to be an officer named Chase.
