A police officer says that God put him “in the right place at the right time” to pull off an incredible rescue that was caught on his body cam.
Officer Aaron Bulmer from Topeka, Kansas was responding to a call about an armed robbery when he spotted something unusual.
A 4-year-old boy was wandering alone in the park in the city center. As he walked over to investigate he saw the boy fall into a small pond and quickly slip under the water.
Staying calm under pressure, Bulmer dived in after him, with the camera pinned to his chest recording the incredible rescue.
With the help of a good Samaritan walking by, officer Bulmer pulled the boy out of the water and wrapped him in a jacket to warm him up.
The boy was taken by ambulance to a hospital, but he’s doing well now. It turns out the child has autism, and had wandered away from his home a few blocks away.
Bulmer’s rescue has gone viral, earning him thanks from people around the world and a commendation from his police department.
“I believe that God put me into that situation,” he told the Topeka Capital-Journal, “it definitely would have been a drowning if I would have been 30 seconds to a minute later.”
