Dramatic bodycam footage shows the moment a dedicated police officer saved a baby’s life after the infant choked on a goldfish cracker.

Distraught mother Amanda Zimmerman was filmed handing her 18 month-old son ‘Michael’ MJ over to the cop in Kissimmee, Florida, earlier this month.

She flagged down a passing patrol car after noticing MJ struggling to breathe.

Amanda could be heard screaming: ‘Oh my God! Oh my God!’ as MJ struggled to breathe.

One of the cops can be heard to say ‘He’s not responding,’ while frantically patting MJ’s back in a bid to dislodge the snack.

Amanda can be seen getting so distressed that another cop takes her a few feet away to let the officer doing CPR concentrate on MJ.

Moments later, the officer and a third cop carefully flip MJ over onto his back, and switch to patting him on the chest while the little boy’s limbs hang limp.

And their efforts are finally met with success, as MJ gives a gasp and begins to breathe again.

Afterwards, MJ was taken to hospital, where doctors told his relieved mother that he would make a full recovery.

Amanda told WESH: ‘I was just beside myself.

‘Being without oxygen for that long and then just coming out? Ya know, he didn’t miss a beat.’

Amanda says she never imagined MJ would choke on a cracker, and now plans to learn CPR.

She has nicknamed the youngster ‘Miracle Michael,’ and hailed the cops who saved her son’s life, saying: ‘God put’em where they needed to be.’
