Bodycam footage has captured the moment a recently trained Georgia school resource officer saved a choking newborn after spotting the baby’s parents swerving on the road as they rushed to the hospital. 

Officer Zakia Williams was driving home from her shift in Gwinnett County, just outside Atlanta, last week when she spotted the SUV swerving across the road. 

Williams said the male and female inside the car appeared to be distressed when she pulled up alongside them and wound down her window to ask if they were okay.

The officer, who only started on the job two weeks ago, said she noticed the baby girl in the front seat.

The parents, who haven’t been identified publicly, immediately started screaming that the three-week-old baby wasn’t breathing. 

Williams said she made the couple pull over and then rushed over to help. 

Her bodycam video captured her rushing over and repeatedly asking: ‘Where’s she at, where’s she at?’

Williams grabbed the newborn and immediately started performing CPR with two fingers. 

She said she immediately felt relief when she heard the baby girl start to cry.

‘She took a big gasp, and she started crying. I was like, ‘She’s breathing’,’ Williams told CBS46.

The family had been rushing to the hospital after the baby started choking while being fed at home. 

The newborn was subsequently checked over in hospital before being released. 

Williams had only been on the job as a school resource officer for Gwinnett County Public Schools for two weeks at the time of the incident. 

She has seven years of prior law enforcement experience.  

‘When I signed up for this job, I knew what it entailed,’ Williams said. 

‘The main thing is to protect and serve the community, and I just felt like I was fulfilling part of my duty.’
