• Real-Life Hero Saves Baby and Sparks Some Uncomfortable Questions While Doing It

    Daily Surge Summary: Hero Law Enforcement Official saves a newborn’s life and prompts questions about the value of life in the process.

    Not only the column below, but someone watching this newly-released video of a law-enforcement officer coming to the life-saving rescue of a helpless, struggling infant remarked: “Now there’s a real hero.”

    Read the account of the mesmerizing occurrence. Take a look at the riveting images provided. See if you agree:

    South Carolina sheriff’s deputy is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic video showed how his quick thinking saved the life of a 12-day-old baby girl last month [reports Paulina Dedaj/foxnews.com].

    Deputy W. Kimbro with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office pulled a vehicle over on June 11 in the Summerville area for speeding. After the car stopped, one of the passengers exited and explained to Kimbro that they were rushing a small infant to hospital after she was found choking and had stopped breathing.

    Kimbro immediately jumped into action, “Let me have the baby.”

    In body cam footage released Thursday, the deputy can be seen feeling for a pulse before beginning to massage 12-day-old Riley’s chest, attempting to open the child’s airway and clear away saliva by lifting her neck and inserting his finger in her mouth. He calmly continues tapping on her chest to keep her awake.

    According to the girl’s mother, the infant was sleeping when she began choking on what might have been milk.

    “Her lips are a little blue, I’m worried about her circulation,” Kimbro can be heard telling another deputy.

    “Come on, come on baby. She’s breathing as long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing but I’m worried about her because it looks like she’s going in and out.”

    When the newborn’s chest begins to move Kimbro seems confident she can now breath – then she makes a dramatic movement and stretches her arms out, appearing to signal she’s okay.

    EMS arrived on the scene shortly after and took over.

    “Because of Deputy Kimbro’s steadfast, professional and heroic response, the 12-day old baby was able to live. Please join us in congratulating Deputy Kimbro for his gallant actions that prolonged human life,” the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

    Deputy Kimbro was awarded the “Life-Saving Medal” for his actions.

    As he undeniably should be.

    The whole episode is goosebump-inducing — and thought provoking, at the same time. Why do incidents like this thrill viewers? Why do videos like this generate virus-level sharing on line? Because a baby’s life has been dramatically saved.

    So … how can the same society that applauds scenes like this , rejoicing that an innocent life has been snatched back from lurking disaster, shrug its shoulders and claim if baby Riley’s mom had opted to abort her fourteen, or even thirteen, days before the encounter with Deputy Kimbro it would have been tolerable because it would have been legal? That it should be legal under any circumstances?

    Hooray for Kimbro. As noted: we’re talking about hero-status here. Thank God Riley is okay. Shame on those who cheer him and her – and cheer so-called “abortion rights” at the same time.
