A South Carolina police officer is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic body camera video showed how his actions helped save a choking 4-month-old infant.

Cpl. Derrall Foster of the Belton Police Department said he arrived at the scene on Oct. 4 to find neighbors waving him down in a panic, Fox Carolina reported.

SOUTH CAROLINA DEPUTY SAVES CHOKING 12-DAY-OLD INFANT AFTER STOPPING SPEEDING VEHICLE

A baby named Maryelle had stopped breathing after choking on a Tylenol her mother, Kiersten Nivens, administered to help the infant’s teething. The desperate mother had run outside for help after her phone battery died.

“She was not blue yet, but she was not breathing,” Foster told the station. “She was very limp. I saw my 2-year-old as if it were her, and I knew we had to take care of the situation.”

Video shows Foster performing a modified version of chest compressions for infants, tapping her back to dislodge the medicine from her throat. But the child wasn’t responding and appeared lethargic, he told the station.

Foster didn’t give up and continued to pat her back multiple times until he heard the perfect sound: Maryelle’s cry.

“Oh God it was very relieving,” Foster said. “I’m just doing my job. That’s all I was doing.”

After the scare, Nivens told the station she was thankful for Foster and all the first responders who helped her child.

Georgia DUI suspect evades police, crashes car going 131 mph: police

Georgia police clocked a 33-year-old man going at least 131 mph while driving down a highway Saturday morning before he crashed.

The unidentified suspect evaded police while driving his Volvo down Ga. 400 in Alpharetta before crashing into a concrete median and flipping over a guardrail, according to a Facebook post by the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.

Police attempted to catch up with the driver, who reportedly accelerated when he saw the flashing blue lights of the officer’s vehicle.

“He tried to exit at McFarland Pkwy but was going too fast, went airborne across McFarland, hit the concrete median, and flipped over the guardrail. He was able to walk out,” police said in a statement.

Photos of the incident show the wrecked vehicle being towed out from behind the guardrail, as well as the suspect’s 131 mph speed captured on the officer’s radar gun.

The man was charged with driving under the influence, driving with an open container of alcohol, reckless driving, speeding, fleeing and eluding from law enforcement.

“While this driver is facing several charges, we’re so very thankful we didn’t have to deliver a fatality notification to his, or anyone else’s family,” the department said.

They added: “Folks, please talk to your friends and family, share this post, and be careful out there.”

Texas police officer fatally shoots woman in her home after welfare check

Westlake Legal Group fort-worth-police-car-fb Texas police officer fatally shoots woman in her home after welfare check Melissa Leon fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 1199b009-680e-5c3e-bba4-9687cb9051b5

A black Texas woman was shot and killed by a white Fort Worth police officer who was called to the woman’s home for a welfare check, authorities said.

In a statement, the department said it received a call at 2:25 a.m. reporting an open front door at a residence. Responding officers searched the perimeter of the house and saw a person standing inside near the window, according to police.

“Perceiving a threat, the officer drew his duty weapon and fired one shot, striking the person inside the residence,” the department stated. In body camera video released by police, two officers search the home from the outside with flashlights before one shouts, “Put your hands up, show me your hands.” One shot is then fired through a window.

Officers entered the house and located an individual and a firearm, and began performing emergency medical care.

Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth identified the woman as 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson. She succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. There were no other injuries.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation, according to police. He has been with the Fort Worth Police Department since April 2018.

TEXAS MAN SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR KILLING SIX MEMBERS OF EX-WIFE’S FAMILY

The department released bodycam footage of the incident “to provide transparent and relevant information to the public as we are allowed within the confines of the” investigation, it stated. Any video taken inside the house could not be distributed due to state law.

The neighbor who called 911 about the open front door told Fox 4 the police officers didn’t announce who they were or knock on the door before searching the outside of the house.

“When I made that non-emergency call, I didn’t say it was a burglary. I didn’t say it was people fighting. I didn’t say anything to make them have a gun. All they needed to do is ring the doorbell,” James Smith said.

“They didn’t park up front, they parked on the side. They sent SRT, which is the special response team. They didn’t have a plainclothes officer to knock on that door,” Pastor Kyev Tatum told Fox 4.

The incident comes less than two weeks after a white former Dallas police officer was sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing her black neighbor inside his own apartment. Amber Guyger said during her trial that mistook Botham Jean’s apartment for her own, which was one floor below Jean’s.

Guyger, 31, was convicted of murder for Jean’s September 2018 death.

Tom Homan hits back at liberal mayor of Minneapolis: He needs to ‘remember who he works for’

Westlake Legal Group HOMAN-CROP Tom Homan hits back at liberal mayor of Minneapolis: He needs to 'remember who he works for' Julia Musto fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 180c62d3-8913-53ec-9fa1-5090e69dac93

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey “needs to remember who he works for,” former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said on Friday.

This reaction comes after President Trump ramped up his ongoing feud with Frey at a campaign rally on Thursday, calling him a “bad mayor” and attacking the city’s policy on refugee settlement.

The president vowed to give communities greater say in refugee policy and discussed reducing the refugee resettlement program. Minnesota, which is home to a large Somali immigrant population, also has the largest number of refugees per capita nationwide, with 13 percent of the country’s refugees, according to U.S. Census data.

Frey took to Twitter to hit back, writing that immigrants and refugees are welcome in his city.

WATCH: TRUMP MOCKINGLY IMITATES STRZOK AND PAGE DURING RAUCOUS RALLY

Before the rally, Frey had issued a proclamation declaring Thursday “Love Trumps Hate” day in the city.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Homan agreed with the president’s message.

He told the “Friends” hosts that Frey is “not a dictator.”

“He works for the taxpayers of that city, and the taxpayers have the right to decide,” he said. “They pay school taxes. They pay property taxes. They should have a say in how that city runs.”

“So, shame on him,” said Homan. “I’ll tell him the same thing I told Representative [Pramila] Jayapal. They work for us, but they forget that.”

The Trump campaign blasted Frey earlier in the week after city officials proposed a fee of more than $500,000 for security at the Target Center for the rally.

Minneapolis police union boss hits back at mayor ahead of Trump rally

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093887954001_6093888836001-vs Minneapolis police union boss hits back at mayor ahead of Trump rally Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 0e4a5825-77c8-5fac-8942-7f9db54215cb

The head of the Minneapolis police union delivered impassioned remarks prior to President Trump’s reelection rally Thursday night, praising him for championing the rights of law enforcement officials across the country, before being called up on stage later on in the night to be recognized by the president.

“We’re seeing a lot of red cop shirts out here tonight because of the hypocrisy,” Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the  Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said at the “Keep America Great rally” at the Target Center in Minnesota. “They don’t want the police here when it’s a Republican who stands up for the police, but if it’s a Democrat we get a different story. Our cops are here as much as they could be in full force across the state.”

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE BAR OFF-DUTY COPS FROM WEARING UNIFORMS AT POLITICAL EVENTS AHEAD OF TRUMP RALLY

Just last week, the city rolled out a new rule that barred officers from appearing in uniform at political rallies or events, a move that raised eyebrows among Trump supporters, particularly cops, who questioned the timing of the new rule.

Kroll and other officers appeared at the rally in bright red “Cops for Trump” T-shirts, which Trump pointed to during the rally.

“I love you guys,” Trump said, giving Kroll a shoutout along with the rest of the police force before inviting him to join him and other union officers on the stage. “You are so great, so respected, you don’t even know how much our public loves you.”

“How can you thank this guy for everything he’s done for law enforcement? Wonderful president,” Kroll said in return.

Kroll also condemned Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who released a statement denouncing Trump’s visit to the city last week.

“Our entire city will not stand behind the president, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city — and this country — great,” said Frey, a Democrat. “While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

“The mayor said the president wasn’t welcome but the Police Federation of Minneapolis begs to differ,” Kroll said as the crowd cheered.

Kroll slammed the Democratic Party, which has held sway in the state for close to 47 years, and which Trump is determined to flip in the upcoming election.

Florida man disguised as woman robs bank, steals patrol car, police allege

A man in Florida accused of robbing a bank while disguised as a woman has been arrested after he allegedly stole a police cruiser and led deputies on a two-county chase, investigators said.

Gumersindo Reyes Jr., 51, was wearing a gold dress and a red wig when he entered a Chase Bank in Casselberry, northeast of Orlando, and passed a note to the teller demanding money, Police Chief Larry Krantz told reporters. He allegedly left carrying an undisclosed amount of cash in his backpack.

Reyes drew the attention of a passing Seminole County deputy who saw the suspect ditch his disguise behind a bush, Fox 35 Orlando reported.

After failing to subdue Reyes with a stun gun, the deputy chased him into an apartment complex across the street from the bank, WFTV reported. The deputy reached for his firearm to order Reyes to the ground but Reyes also tried to grab the weapon, setting off a struggle.

Reyes then dashed out of the complex and stole the deputy’s patrol vehicle, police said.

“There’s nothing that drives me crazier than to see a ‘bad guy,’ or know that a ‘bad guy’ got behind the wheel of one of our patrol vehicles, even for just one moment,” Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said. “I’m OK that he was in the car, but he was sitting in the wrong seat.”

Reyes led deputies on a wild chase through Seminole and Orange counties before crashing the vehicle into another car in Maitland where they finally arrested him, police said.

He faced numerous charges including battery on an officer, resisting an officer with violence and robbery with a firearm, according to police records.

Reyes had a criminal history of attempted murder and robbery in Puerto Rico, officials told WFTV.

Nevada police officer saves American flag from side of Las Vegas highway

The keen eye of a police officer in Nevada helped rescue a wayward version of Old Glory from the shoulder of a busy Las Vegas-area highway.

The Nevada Highway Patrol shared on Facebook a video of the moment that Trooper Jason Buratczuk, an Air Force veteran, pulled over along the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 near Sahara Avenue on Oct. 2, after he spotted the American flag on the side of the road.

“It’s not just a piece of fabric. It’s a symbol of our country,” he told FOX5. “People have bled and died for that.”

OKLAHOMA BOY, 3, WOWS POLICE WITH HIS UNIFORM

Buratczuk had first spotted the flag in the northbound lanes but kept driving past. He then decided to circle back around to retrieve it.

“I was thinking, ‘How could someone let this fall off their car?'” he told FOX5.

Video released by police shows the officer pulled over to the left side of the roadway and getting out to retrieve the flag as cars zip past.

The highway patrol said that Buratczuk collected the flag and immediately brought it to a local American Legion Lodge. The American Legion took possession of the flag and will properly retire it in a burning ceremony that is held about every six months.

Officials are asking drivers who may spot a flag on the side of the road to not retrieve it themselves due to safety concerns, but to contact NHP instead to have a trooper pick it up.

For Buratczuk, whose father, brother, cousins, and grandparents all served in the Armed Forces, the flag represents more than just the fabric its stitched from.

“Maybe we’d be better off if we take a minute and think of what the flag represents, and what it means to people,” he told FOX5.

A cute prospective three-year-old police recruit stood tall to meet members of a local police department in Oklahoma City Tuesday and show off his tiny uniform.

Carson impressed local officers from the Edmond Police Department, who were hosting their monthly Coffee with a Cop event, where residents attend to meet law enforcement, ask questions and strengthen community relationships.

The child showed off his uniform to Lt. Paul Phillips who joked, “he outranks me,” after noticing that the toddler had three stars on his jacket.

Carson then proudly blew his police whistle, as Phillips told him “that’s awesome” and that her “liked his outfit.”

Coffee with a Cop takes place on the second Tuesday of every month across Edmond and began in the town in June 2017.

The initiative was launched in Hawthorne, Calif. in 2011 as a way for officers from the Hawthorne Police Department to establish trust between the community and the police. The program has expanded nationwide and “opens the door for interactions outside of the crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together,” according to the program’s website.
