(SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan.) — It was just a routine call for Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Rexroat but he ended up saving a baby's life.
"When we got there the baby wasn't breathing and he was limp," said Rexroat.
Officials responded to a house Wednesday night to a possible drowning.
They say an 11-month-old and a three-year-old were bathing in the bathtub when the mom briefly left them alone.
"She left for a moment and the baby was submerged in water," Rexroat said.
When Rexroat arrived he gave the baby CPR.
"I was just focused on trying to get the baby breathing again," Rexroat said.
The infant started to breathe and emergency crews took him to the hospital.
A scary situation but one Safe Kids officials say can be a lesson to parents.
"It only takes a fraction of a second for something to happen," said Ronda Lusk, the Wichita Safe Kids coordinator.
