A Georgia police officer was in the right place at the right time to save the life of a two-month-old baby and the parents were so thankful they touchingly named the officer the child’s Godfather. And from this we learn that all lives matter.
When Officer Kenneth Knox was called to the Parham residence in Greenville, Georgia, he came across a startling scene. Baby Ma’Yavi Parham was choking to death on cereal that had become lodged in her throat.
“We both didn’t know what to do, so I called 911,” the baby’s father told the media according to Breitbart News.
But the second he arrived, officer Knox leapt into action.
“The Lord God touched me and I knew what to do,” he said.
Mr. Parham told Fox 4 that officer Knox “laid her on the couch…and sucked cereal out of her throat.”
In seconds the child began breathing again. It was “music to his ears,” officer Knox said.
Not long afterward officer Knox posted a message to his Facebook account that has gone viral.
“Out of my 25 years being a cop, this is my greatest and most profound accomplishment,” the officer said. “It made every second of those 25 years worth it all. I am forever humbled and changed by this.”
The parents were so thankful they named the officer little Ma’Yavi’s godfather.
It was an honor that officer Knox was thrilled to receive. He also posted another Facebook post calling the baby his little “angel.”
