SMYRNA, Ga. -- The Smyrna Police Department is crediting a master patrol officer with saving a baby's life this week.

Darrell Nesbit performed CPR on the 11-month-old child after finding the baby unresponsive. It happened at around 11:40 p.m. Wednesday at the Glendale Apartments off South Cobb Drive.

Police said the child was not breathing when Nesbit arrived at the apartment complex. He took the baby from the mother and administered first aid on the trunk of his patrol car. After a short time, the child began breathing again.

"MPO Nesbit's immediate response and heroic actions are credited to saving the infant's life," Smyrna Police spokesperson Christopher Graeff said in a release.
