Friday the 13th proved to be very lucky for a baby boy called Pierre whose life was saved by a passing SWAT cop with impressive CPR skills.
A member of the Atlanta Police Department's SWAT unit was in the right place at the right time when he saved the life of a 4-month-old baby by administering CPR.
The amazing footage was all caught on the heroic cop, Special Police Officer Robert Oden's, body cam.
Around 12:30 p.m. on Friday, SPO Oden was patrolling along the Martin Luther King Corridor when a car in front of him began to flash its hazard lights and honking the horn repeatedly.
This was the moment that the horror began to unfold as the unnamed woman approached SPO. Oden

SPO Oden followed the car to a nearby fire station when a distressed woman carrying a baby approached his vehicle, according to a statement from the Atlanta Police Department.
The woman exclaimed that the child was 'unresponsive.' The APD statement added that the child was not breathing.
SPO Oden exited his car and checked for a pulse on the infant.
When he couldn't find a pulse, SPO Oden acted quickly and radioed for assistance while simultaneously beginning CPR on the tot's chest with his index and middle finger and then just his thumb.
The tot's chest was so tiny, SPO Oden was reduced to doing chest compressions with his thumb
By the time an ambulance arrived at the scene, the infant began making noises and was breathing
By the time an ambulance arrived at the scene, Oden had saved the baby's life as the child began to cough and move his legs.
The APD statement read in part: 'Officers never know what to expect during their shift, they just show up ready to act. SPO Oden['s] actions were quick, calm, caring, and professional. This is another example of the heroic work that officers do on any given day. His response reflects a high level of training, readiness, and compassion. We could not be prouder of him in this critical moment.'
The department's press release added that the streets of Atlanta are 'safer with SPO Oden.'
According to Oden's LinkedIn page, he has been with the APD's SWAT unit since 2004.

WATCH: Maple Leafs Fans Fight Each Other After Game 7 Loss
After the Lightning rolled the Leafs 2-1 in Game 7 on Saturday night, Leafs fans didn’t seem to know how to cope with the loss and several fistfights broke out in the stadium.
Video of one of the tussles shows a shirtless fan desperately trying to avoid blows from a fellow fan, though none seem to connect — at least in the video.
But as the first two circle each other, a few other fans started flailing about forcing a police officer to intervene to break it all up.

The loss for the Leafs puts them out of Stanley Cup contention, once again. But it isn’t anything new. They haven’t won a series since 2004.
As the New York Post added, the Leafs have crumpled for years every time they come anywhere near a series.
“The Maple Leafs have 10 straight losses when facing a chance to close out a series. The list includes blowing a 3-1 series lead on the Canadiens in 2021 but started with memorably blowing a three-goal lead in the final nine minutes of a Game 7 against the Bruins in 2013,” the paper wrote.
Evidently, the fans can feel the frustration.
